More JingPad A1 Linux tablet detailed revealed ahead of crowdfunding

Filed under

The JingPad A1 is a tablet with an 11 inch AMOLED touchscreen display, support for digital pen input, and a detachable keyboard that lets you use the tablet like a laptop. It also has an operating system that’s designed for both tablet and laptop mode.

That’s because the JingPad A1 will be the first tablet to ship with JingOS, an operating system developed by Chinese company Jingling that’s a custom Linux distribution designed for tablets but capable of running desktop applications (as well as some Android applications).

First unveiled in March, the tablet will go up for pre-order soon through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. Jingling hasn’t announced a price yet, but an Indiegogo preview page is now live, and folks who sign up with an email address may be able to save 40-percent when orders open up in May.

    Linux users interested in using a tablet loaded with the latest Linux operating systems may be interested in the new JingPad A1 Linux tablet soon to be launching via the Indiegogo crowdfunding website offering prices with up to 40% off the recommended retail price. “The specs and materials of JingPad A1 are all consumer-level. 2K+Display/5G/Keyboard/Stylus!

Check out the teaser video below to learn more about the Linux table. Unfortunately, no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet.

  • New Video Hypes Up the Ultimate Linux Tablet: the JingPad A1

    So, they have (seemingly) gone and built one using a MediaTek Helio P90 chipset and high-quality components.

    Jingling (the company behind the JingPad and JIngOS) say the JingPad A1 checks off a lot of firsts — it’s the ‘first Linux tablet with cellular support’, brings the ‘first 11-inch AMOLED 2K screen to the Linux world’, and is the first device to support a 4096 levels pressure stylus!

    All most of the JingPad A1 specs, which are up on a new mini-site, read like a shopping list for a dream Linux tablet, complete with an ecosystem of solid accessories.

    But is the JingPad in danger of sounding too good to be true?

    We don’t have to wait long to find out if it lives up to the hype. Crowdfunding for the JingPad A1 launches June 15 over on Indiegogo. If the campaign goal is met they want to ship the JingPad to backers beginning in August of this year — ambitious!

    Still no word on the JingPad price (based on the tech specs it’s surely going to be more expensive than the PineTab). Accessories like the magnetic keyboard and trackpad and stylus will be extra.

JingPad A1 - the world's first Consumer-level Linux tablet soon

  • JingPad A1 - the world's first Consumer-level Linux tablet soon launching on Indiegogo

    The company behind JingOS plans to launch a crowdfunding campaign on indiegogo for an ARM-powered tablet preloaded with their JingOS in June 2021, they call it the 'First Consumer-level Linux Tablet - JingPad A1'.

    The pre-launch page for the campaign has been online for almost a week now. People who are interested in this project can now leave an email on the page to get coupons for the product.

Crowdfunding campaign to launch JingPad A1 Linux tablet now live

  • Crowdfunding campaign to launch JingPad A1 Linux tablet now live

    Remember JingPad A1, the world’s first Linux-powered 5G tablet that hit headlines back in March? Now, the tablet is back in the news again, this time with reports of the company behind it, Jingling launching a crowdfunding campaign to bring the device to the market. Also, we have had Linux tablets in the past though JingPad A1’s claim-to-fame is that it is the first Linux-based tablet to boast of 5G connectivity.

    The tablet with an ARM chip at its core along with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage will be running the company’s JingOS which is an Ubuntu-based Linux platform. The tablet is expected to be ready for prime-time action starting June 2021 though the crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo has already been live for about a week now. Those interested can register their interest and collect a coupon to procure the device when it is launched.

    The JingPad A1 will have an 11-inch AMOLED panel having 2K resolutions. The display will have a 4:3 aspect ratio. That again is considered the best aspect ratio for reading books and magazines. In fact, while the effect might not be too noticeable when reading books, magazines are a much better fit on a 4:3 display than it is with displays having a 16:10 aspect ratio. Besides, the display will also have stylus support with 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity.

JingPad A1 Arm Linux 2-in-1 tablet can run Android apps

  • JingPad A1 Arm Linux 2-in-1 tablet can run Android apps (Crowdfunding)

    If you are looking for an Arm Linux tablet option are limited with, for instance, the Allwinner A64 powered 10.1-inch PineTab tablet or the CutiePi tablet with a Raspberry Pi CM4 module.

    If you’d like more performance, the upcoming JingPad A1 2-in-1 tablet might be an option worth looking into. The 11-inch 2K tablet features an octa-core Cortex-A75/A55 processor, coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, and can be transformed into a laptop with an optional detachable keyboard. JingPad A1 runs the company’s JingOS optimized for tablets, and which also happens to be able to run Android apps.

  • 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.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    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.
