Since last December we've been receiving emails from a company working on an Ubuntu Tablet inspired by the failed Ubuntu Edge campaign. That company is apparently going to start accepting pre-orders for their device soon with hopes of shipping this unofficial Ubuntu Tablet in January.

The last we heard of this Ubuntu tablet was earlier in the year when they shared with us their Intel specifications on this tablet and in March had shared expected pricing on the tablet with hopes of shipping the device later this calendar year. Last week I received an unsolicited email from Mark Jun of MJ Technology.

How big is too big for a tablet? While most of the industry has converged around two sizes (one about 7 inches from corner to corner, the other roughly 10 inches across), Samsung apparently wants to push the boundaries. According to a report from SamMobile, the company is currently working on an Android tablet with an 18.4-inch display. The device is reportedly codenamed "Tahoe," and although there are no details about when it might be unveiled, SamMobile claims it runs Android 5.1 Lollipop and features a TFT LCD display with a 1920 x 1080 resolution, a 1.6 GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and rear and front cameras — 8 megapixels and 2.1 megapixels, respectively.

Gadgets

Google's making it possible for Android Wear developers to do way more with watch faces starting today. "We’re launching interactive watch faces, making it easier (and more fun) to stay connected, right from your wrist," the company wrote in a blog post. "Now, with just a tap, your watch face can change its design, reveal more information, or even launch a specific app." Watch faces can now move back and forth between several screens of data, making them far more useful and lessening the need to enter a watch app. Under Armour's watch face is already taking advantage of the new functionality; tapping on the screen cycles between your fitness stats (steps, calories burned, etc.) Google has set up a separate section for interactive watch faces within Google Play.

Actually, yes: AT&T now carries a projector that’s also a tiny, LTE-equipped Android tablet. The movies are built in. That’s better—but I’m still not sure who this clever projector is for. Cinephiles on the go? Business men that need to be able to whip out a projected slideshow at a moment’s notice? I spent a week with it to try and find out.
