I am considering on getting a Dell Duo Tablet PC. I love the idea of a tablet, but there are some things that just need a physical keyboard (no the iPad is NOT immune to this!!) and I hate to have to buy 2 devices, money wise and for passing data back and forth.
The only thing that keeps me from committing to the Dell Duo as a solid Ubuntu tablet is that it would suck to have to use an Applet to change the orientation of the screen. Is there a way to recognize the orientation sensor and configure it?
I am FAR from a knowledgeable Linux user, but I can follow tutorials easily and I learn quickly, and as long as the commands are either simple, or can be copy and pasted, then I don't mind jumping into a terminal.
If I can have it confirmed that this is possible, than this machine will almost undoubtedly be my next portable computing device. Only downsides seem to be battery life and the processor can't handle 1080p videos. Both things I could deal with for a portable machine that can serve multiple purposes :)
p.s. Multi-touch has been fixed in 11.10 hasn't it?
