Fresh news:


Last week, the Ubuntu Touch developer preview was launched on the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10.

Alongside the devices above, Ubuntu Touch will soon be available for the following devices: Motorola XOOM, more Galaxy Nexus’s, Sony Xperia S, Sony Xperia T, Samsung Galaxy S III (international, Verizon Wireless, and AT&T), Huawei Ascend G300, Samsung Galaxy S (GT-I9000), Samsung Galaxy S SCL (GT-I90003), Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy Note II, Samsung Galaxy S II (international), HTC One X, HTC One XL, HTC One X+ (multiple versions), Asus Transformer Infinity, LG Optimus 4x HD, Nexus S, Nexus One, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Wi-Fi, and the Asus Transformer Pad.

It’s surprising to see that Ubuntu Touch will also be ported to aging devices like the Nexus S and the Nexus One, seeing as Canonical stated that a dual-core A9 processor is part of the minimum specs required for the OS. It’s ability be compatible with such old hardware does emphasize the efficiency of the OS.

ARM9 dual core is minimum specs for Ubuntu for Android, not for Ubuntu touch... :)

Canonical is Ubuntu Touch developer :)

That's not really how they're doing things. My port is "official" if that makes you feel better.

Then can you tell us when you'll rewrite the whole OS so it compiles for armv6? Thanks.

The base OS does compile for ARMv6. The Ubuntu image doesn't and won't.

this really looks nice Daz. Hope you can make this fly.

I've seen some great comments about it on the web. For those who don't know much about this yet, here's one glowing review from cnet. This guy even favours this to iOS.

http://reviews.cnet....7-35624752.html


PS: @ Dazzozo, will you post your progress on this in the G300 forum, or will you be starting a new thread elsewhere? I guessing because we are under Modaco/Device Specific/Android Phones, that the latter might be the case?

So when you're finished sampling Ubuntu you just reflash CWM and reload your Android back-up?
