I need a keyboard-less tablet pc that has these sepcs (Ordered by the most wanted to the least):

  • Supports Ubuntu OR Ubuntu remix (just works very well, no need to official support).
  • Touch screen (Keyboard-less)
  • Has camera OR usb ports
  • Screen size from 5" to 14" (Like if there was something out of this range!)
  • Slim
  • Cheap (Yes, I can afford something around 500$, But If it's one choice I would pay 1000$)!
  • Tough (yes I don't want it to break easily)

** Multi touch is never an issue!, I have no plans to use this feature

I want to use it as a demo device in to put my Computer Science (IT) Graduation Project in. I know that there is a numerous tablets that work on win7 or the iPad but I really want one that works with Ubuntu bcuz I'm a developer and need open-solutions.

The SmartQ5 and SmartQ7 are both Ubuntu based tablets, and they are currently available. They are quite cheap and have most of the features you are looking for. Here is a link to a video review of the SmartQ5 on YouTube. Hopefully, it meets your needs. I haven't personally used one, so I can't vouch for their durability.
