KDE Tablet ‘Vivaldi’ Gets Gutted

The €200 KDE tablet might have been given a new name but it still has the same lure on the surface: a low price, stylish design, and awesome open source software.

But what about inside? Is there anything to tempt potential buyers under the hood?

One lucky Vivaldi fan got ahold of a device early and promptly decided to dissect it (as you do) to help answer that question…

The tablet boasts little in the way of surprises. The specifications are as previously revealed – with a 1Ghz ARM Cortex-A9 processor and Mali 400 graphics chip, 512MB RAM and 4GB of SSD storage.

The dissection does reveal that, despite some users hope, RAM upgrades won’t be possible; the RAM is soldered directly to the board.

Further information and gratuitous shots of hardware innards splayed open can be found at the link below.
