The first-time setup wizard advises the user to unplug the keyboard dock (avoiding the mouse issues) and update the system. Unfortunately, as of this update to this page (September 8, 2020) this will not fix any of the issues above.
The image installed on the device was sized for a 16GB (~14GiB) eMMC, but the PineTab shipped with a 64GB (~58GiB) eMMC chip installed. This means that the "Storage" page in the "About" section of Ubuntu Touch System Settings will show total storage as 14.0GiB until the partition table on the device is edited.
UBports developers are currently working This is fixed by an update to Ubuntu Touch released to the Stable channel on a solution that will automatically edit the partition table and resize the data partition without disturbing any user dataSeptember 15, 2020. The image's tag is "2020-09-12", visible in Settings -> About -> OS.
=== Installing using apt ===
Tested with UT, Mobian and Archlinux: sitting right beside the router gives a connection (ca. 60% level). No reception in a distance of 7 meters, no wall, just an opened door, some edges, router not directly visible. Pinephone right beside the Pinetab has an absolutly stable wifi connection.
 
In the event that WiFi fails to connect using Ubuntu Touch, the USB port can be used with an appropriate dongle to connect for internet using ethernet cable.
 
== Keyboard ==
 
The keyboard attaches magnetically and will correctly link only one way: so screen faces the keyboard.
 
The keyboard backlight automatically comes on when keyboard is attached, but the light can be turned off/on by holding down the Pine (super) key and tapping the right CTRL key which also shows a bulb icon. The keyboard draws its power from the PineTab battery.
 
Holding down the Pine key for two seconds and holding it down reveals a popup window of keyboard shortcuts.
 
To access the icon features on the function keys, hold down the Fn key and tap the appropriate key. Ex: F5 and F6 activate volume control (which also has a rocker button on the tablet edge).
