Kickstarter Launches Volla Tablet, Comes with Support for Ubuntu Touch

Volla, the producer of the Volla Phone smartphones, initiated a crowdfunding drive on Kickstarter for their inaugural tablet device, the Volla Tablet. The tablet also supports the Ubuntu Touch mobile OS.

“With options like the hide.me VPN and Ubuntu Touch OS, you’re in control like never before.”

Boasting a 12.3-inch Quad HD screen with 2650×1600 pixel resolution, Volla Tablet employs a potent MediaTek Gaming G99 8-core processor, 12 GB RAM, and 256 GB internal storage. It is equipped with a durable 10,000 mAh battery, 2G/3G/4G cellular network availability, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 13+5 MP primary camera.

Standardly, the Volla Tablet arrives with Volla OS 13, which is Volla’s own operating system deriving from the free Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Nonetheless, customers can purchase the tablet with Ubuntu Touch. This system includes built-in convergence and supports Android apps via the WayDroid container.

Furthermore, users have the option to utilize desktop applications such as Firefox or LibreOffice with the assistance of the Libertine container. Volla suggests that the Volla Tablet equipped with Ubuntu Touch is perfect for Linux enthusiasts and minimalists who seek a streamlined, efficient, and familiar operating system experience.

Ubuntu Touch has already gained popularity among Volla customers, as it functions flawlessly on the Volla Phone 22, Volla Phone X, and Volla Phone X23 smartphones. However, if a larger display is required, it is believed that the Volla Tablet with Ubuntu Touch will be a superb companion for your projects.

“Experience a world premiere with multi-boot functionality, facilitating the installation of additional operating systems without data loss or complex setups. Strictly separate professional and private data with customizable security settings,” the Kickstarter page states.

It should be noted by my US readers that the Volla Tablet can only connect to US mobile networks using a roaming SIM card from outside the country. Volla is aiming to obtain PTCRB certification from North American cellular operators, given sufficient support for the Volla Tablet.

If you’re interested in purchasing a tablet that comes with Ubuntu Touch pre-installed, you can back the Volla Tablet’s initiative via its Kickstarter page. Prices begin at $562 USD for the Volla Tablet, complete with a USB charging cable and a USB power adapter designed for EU sockets. Delivery is estimated for October 2024.
