KDE KDE reaches out to another device form factor. Plasma's plugin-based design is at work again, after launching KDE special netbook interface. This time around, the KDE team presents its Plasma Tablet interface.

Nokia N900...

Sweet, kind of surprised they had that odd looking tablet instead of just running it on the Nokia N900.

They were working on it since Oct 2009, which means it was being worked on BEFORE the N900 was even released.

Looking forward to this, even though I don't even really like KDE. A lot of the Plasma stuff is really cool though.

Technically the N900 is in the class of "Internet Tablets" as the other N700 and N800 series were.

It really is more of an internet tablet that makes calls, than a smart phone. I always tell people, it's a mini computer, that has some phone features. And I believe that's a pretty accurate description.
