PineTab for distance teaching
#1
Hi,

I am looking for a lightweight (and possibly cheap) tablet or 2-in-1 device, running linux (preferably Ubuntu, or Ubuntu Touch, where both MsTeams and https://openboard.ch can be installed), whose touchscreen is working under linux and compatible with/quickly responsive to a stylus.

Some connectivity is also required (wi-fi, hdmi for external monitor/projector, and a headphone+mic jack).

My main use for that would be distance teaching (I currently use a combination of laptop + wacom board, which is not so lightweight).

Microsoft Surface would be ideal (even though not so cheap), but its touchscreen is not compatible with Linux (let alone using it with a stylus).

A PineTab would be an option, but I am not sure about its responsiveness to a stylus, and it seems as if PineTabs are out-of-stock anyway.

Could anyone comment on the above? Is any PineTab Pro perhaps going to be developed and put on sale any time from now?

Many thanks and best regards,

Giuseppe.

I use the PineTab with mobian for a while now. It's OK for couch surfing and looking for mails etc. if you are (very) patient. But for serious work...NO!
I read there is MS Teams for ARM but I doubt it's running on the PineTab. Can't say anything about the stylus.

Hope that helps, Günther

the aarch64 teams does work, i tested it myself. from what i understand about ubports, it would probably be a pain to install. (i know i could never get libertine containers to work for installing packaged apps.) the web version would probably work just as well though.
