The difference an OTA update can make!


Just over 2 months ago we launched our first convergence device, the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet with partners BQ. Since then we’re constantly working to evolve the platform to provide better overall performance and speed with our Over-the-Air updates (OTA.)
