Canonical has been working hard in the latest months, in order to get Ubuntu Touch 1.0 closer to a stable and reliable Ubuntu mobile operating system. For now, it is officially support only on the Google Nexus smartphones and tablets: Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10.

The youtube user Novelldesktop has created a presentation video of Ubuntu Touch running on a LG Nexus 4 Phone, presenting us the user interface and the menu. Among others, the video demoed how easy is for the users to access the popular internet services Facebook or Gmail, the management of calles and SMS messages and the installation of some Click packages.
