There are a lot of 2-in-1 tablet and laptop devices on the show floor at Mobile World Congress. With BQ’s M10, you can get a similar mobile productive experience on Ubuntu.
The tablet itself has a desktop mode, that acts similarly to how Windows 10 tablets switch. But if you want more screen real estate, the BQ M10 is compatible with Convergence as it has a Micro HDMI port you can use to plug into a monitor. Turning on a paired Bluetooth mouse and keyboard will activate desktop mode automatically. You’ll see the same Scopes interface from Ubuntu’s mobile devices, albeit slightly tweaked to suit a tablet’s standards.
