Vivaldi Flying Squirrel Linux tablet is making progress

It’s been more than a year since KDE developer Aaron Seigo announced plans to build a tablet designed to run open Mer Linux and the KDE Plasma Active environment. The Vivaldi tablet project’s hit a few speed bumps since then, but this week the team has a mostly working prototype.

The latest model is based on the EOMA-68 computer module from Rhombus Tech. That means that if and when the tablet ships, you’ll be able to remove a single card with the processor, memory and storage and swap in a new card to upgrade the tablet without replacing the screen, display, or other components.
