First time I post here, but I am a long time reader of the forum.
I recently stumbled upon the BQ M10 tablet, ubuntu edition, only to find out that it is sold out.
So I was considering getting the android version and flashing the device myself. Or better yet, get another compatible device with more RAM and use that (recommendations for hardware are very welcome).
I just need a few clarifications as google wasn't a great help.
As I understand it, there is no difference between ubuntu touch and ubuntu for phones. But there is a difference between ubuntu desktop and ubuntu touch (the latter running MIR with unity 8, which is used on phones).
Given that touch an desktop editions are different; if I flash the current build of ubuntu touch on a device, will that automatically include desktop mode if I connect peripherals (similar to what is advertised on the BQ website)? It should be the case, but would like to make sure. To specify: I am not so keen to have the desktop on an external display, but rather on the tablet itself.
Another question would be; will flashing the BQ tablet basically give me the ubuntu edition they are selling or are there differences to what OEMs can do as opposed to us.
Cheers and many thanks in advance.
