JingPad A1 is a Linux tablet powered by JingOS

Filed under

Shortly after introducing a new Linux-based operating system for tablets and phones called JingOS, Chinese company Jingling has unveiled the first tablet that will ship with the operating system pre-installed.

The JingPad A1 is an 11 inch tablet with support for optional pen and detachable keyboard accessories. It’ll also support 4G and 5G cellular networks.

But the main thing setting this tablet apart from others is the software. It’s powered by Jingling’s custom Linux distribution that’s been optimized to offer a touch-friendly user interface inspired by iOS and Android. Underneath the pretty UI though, it’s basically a Linux distro which means you should be able to run desktop programs as well as mobile apps.

JingPad A1 wants to claim first consumer Linux tablet title

  • JingPad A1 wants to claim first consumer Linux tablet title

    There was a surge of interest in open source-friendly smartphones that ran “true” Linux operating systems in the past few years. Those haven’t exactly disappeared but the focus has mostly remained on smartphones, save for one or two exceptions. Last January, a Chinese startup suddenly popped out almost out of nowhere with a curious proposition of a Linux OS that pretty much copies the iPadOS user experience. That same company has now started to get the ball rolling with an actual iPad-like product, the JingPad A1, which it claims is the world’s first consumer-level Linux tablet.

    China's JingLing recently introduced a Linux-based operating system called JingOS that's designed specifically for mobile devices. And now the company has revealed plans to launch a consumer-level tablet running that operating system on Indiegogo in June.

    The JingPad A1 sports an 11-inch AMOLED display panel at 2,368 x 1,728 resolution and 4:3 aspect, with support for 109 percent of the NTSC color space and a screen-to-body ratio of (almost) 90 percent.

    Here finally is something to be really excited about in the tablet segment, the new JingPad A1 running the Linux-based Jing OS. What’s great with the JingPad A1 is that it comes with support for a stylus with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and a detachable keyboard complete with a touchpad.

    The Chinese startup Jingling also stated it’s Jing OS comes across as a stable platform for tablet operations. It seems to have been modeled along the lines of the Apple iPadOS though, beneath the outer user interface, you get a feel of Linux on the desktop. The Jing OS should also be able to run native Qt5 (and Gtk3/4) Linux applications with no major compatibility issues. The same perhaps can also be said of Android applications as well though that would be via Anbox or hybris.

JingPad A1 Set to Become "First Consumer Linux Tablet"

  • JingPad A1 Set to Become "First Consumer Linux Tablet"

    As the Linux laptops market heats up, there is still one missing piece of the puzzle: Linux tablets. JingPad is aiming to fill that void with the JingPad A1 2-in-1 convertible, which is aiming to become the "world's first consumer-level Linux tablet."

    Let's start with the specs. The JingPad A1 is a 2-in-1 convertible device, allowing you to switch between tablet mode and a standard laptop configuration. As it is a 2-in-1, you're not bound to either option, and you can remove the keyboard while using tablet mode for a true portable tablet experience.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
