are closed; locked down from their users. What use is open source software if no hardware will run it? Device computing is controlled by a few large companies. The Vivaldi tablet is an alternative open platform. One where device owners’ rights are a priority and creativity is not limited. Vivaldi is a grass roots collaboration of the Mer Project, KDE’s Plasma Active team, intrepid leaders, and other committed individuals. An invitation to openness.

The presentation will appeal to:
* FOSS advocates and hackers
* People who want mobile OS and device alternatives
* Managers who want mobile computing platforms that fit the needs of their organizations.

No special technical skill is required. Yet the presentation will appeal to a wide range of interests and skill levels.
