Hey mate, I don't think they have been able to convince any OEMs to pre-install Ubuntu on any tablets yet. Even if they did I don't think it would be bigger than Android.

I would buy an Ubuntu tablet for exactly two reasons:
- I wouldn't have to pay a Microsoft tax (I think it is impossible to get a tablet without OS)
- I would know that it is compatible with Linux and I can easily install the distro of my choice (in my case it would be Slackware, of course)

Actually I would rather go for a custom build desktop, may be Openbox with AWN or something similar. Not a fan of those dumbed down hard to customize DEs, but to each his own, if you like it then use it.
