    I think Ubuntu will only work on high-spec tablets and phone, so quad-core CPU and 1 GB CPU.

    I guess your tablet is low-cost and low-spec ...

    Hi and thanks for replying.

    Well my tablets specs
    ARM Cortex A9 (Dual Core)
    nVidia Tegra II T20 1Ghz
    DDRII 667Mhz, 512MB
    WLAN(802.11 b/g/n)
    surely this is more than capable?

    Nope, that is much to weak. Ubuntu will need a Quad core ARM and AT MINIMUM 1 Gigabyte of memory and 1.5 - 3 Gigabytes of space to install itself.

    Found it: http://www.ubuntu.com/devices/tablet/partner ; see Ubuntu tablet hardware requirements

    Your hardware is a few orders too weak.

    Maybe something on http://www.cyanogenmod.org/ ?

    But: I wouldn't bother ... the specs are too low. It is a cheap tablet, isn't? About 100 - 150 Euro? I have such a tablet with Android 4.x, and I'm sorry I bought it: it's slow as hell.
    I also owned a HTC Wildfire, and it was even too slow for Android 2.x, let alone Android 3 or 4

    I have a Samsung Galaxy SII phone and it's much better.

    I would say anything below 1GB and 1+ GHZ dual-core is useless for anything modern.
