    Re: design a tablet for ubuntu

    I have some questions about this tablet:
    1.What represents the little part of the table (on one picture this thing is keyboard).

    2. On the top of the tablet there is something that looks like button. It is button or not? Why it's not in the center of the tablet?

    3. There are 5 rectangles. What represent the rectangles? Solar Cells?

    In my opinion you should move Ubuntu logo to the top of the tablet, at the place like it was in Ubuntu 10.04 (top left corner).

    Thanks.

    Good luck with your designing.

    I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT A QUANTAL QUETZAL IS...BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE PRETZEL AND I LIKE PRETZEL

    the part of the tablet that is on one of picture used such as keyboard is the extraLED .
    ExtraLED is another led that it duty is save the energy and a place for view the unity launcher or play controller or progress bar or keyboard or any extra widget.
    for example ,you have low battery and you want to listen to music , at this moment you turn off the main led and control your music with extraled at resault you save the energy .
    this extraled can put on the up,down,left or right via connect to main or put on another place and connect via usb .
    those 5 rectangle button are the tabs that use for switch between windows . you touch with your finger and press on one of this button with your another finger for connect the window to this button and when we need to it you can switch to this window.
    this ubuntu logo is the 3 button for power ,restart and switch off/on mainLED .
    if I put it on top left corner it would under the finger in horizonal or vertical stat and it make many problems .
    thank you for reply.

    Ok I understand this. But who is listening to music on his tablet? For music we usually use Mp3 players (Ipods, etc.), because they are portable and you can have it in your pocket. But if you are listening with table, than you have to have it somewhere near you (in your hands, on table) .

    It's nice design I have to admit, but in my opinion the extraLED, will cause problems. The tablet is not build from one piece (it's not portable), and there can be some connection problems with extraLed and tablet. But that's just my opinion (I don't have tablet, because I didn't find it usable )

    Well, because if you are working with tablet for example on the bus, the external part (LCD) can easily fall down from your knees (many falls and you have to replace connector- it depends on type of connector).

    BTW, what will you do with your designs? Will you send it to Canonical or you are making this just for fun?

    It's hard do describe this for me, because I am not native speaker. Maybe someone will see that post and will describe the meaning for you.

    My question is: will you send this design to Canonical, or you are modeling just for fun?

    About designing a connector: I am not modeling .
