Looks like Google and iOS has some competition coming:

A mobile device should be more than a collection of applications. It should reflect who you are. Plasma Active infuses your tablet with the smarts to support what you are doing, when you are doing it with the all-new, touch-based Activities user experience. On the 9th of October, 2011 (9.10.11), the first release of the Plasma Active tablet user experience was made publicly available. Plasma Active One’s touchscreen interface is more than just an application launcher. As soon as the device is turned on, rather than the traditional grid of applications, you see the Activities view showing your current project, task or idea. With Activities, you can collect all of the documents, people, web sites, media and widgets related to a topic in one place, building personalized and interactive views of your life.With Plasma Active, the possibilities are unlimited. You can add as many things to an Activity as you wish with its “infinite scroll” feature. You can create as many Activities as you like and move between them using the touch-friendly Activity Switcher.

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

I recently spent the day watching all the videos I could find of this.

Tweak it 'til it breaks, then learn how to fix it.

It is out and in use. Vids of it running on several devices.

Here's the community homepage
http://community.kde.org/Plasma/Active

Here's the official KDE announcement
http://kde.org/announcements/plasma-active-one/

The announcement says it's available and optimized for the tablet form factor. I just have not had any time to get after it.
My big project for the Christmas break is to get ArchLinuxARM installed on my TouchPad. I'm keeping really good notes and am ready to get ask for help here in the Mobility section at Scot's.

I am also very interested in getting Linux running on my Touchpad. The last time I looked the progress had not gotten very far. Let us know if you find anything viable thumbsup.gif
