Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Vixtel Unity is an Australian tablet vendor that has big goals. They want to be the first ones to release a dual booting Ubuntu Touch and Android tablet, having 2 GB of RAM memory, 64 GB of internal storage, a quad-core CPU, a 10.1 Retina display, keyboard connectors.
For more information about this, see the Vixtel Unity website.
For now, Ubuntu Touch is officially available only for the Google Nexus 7 tablet. The dual booting tablets are not well appreciated because they need extra hardware, so they weight and cost more then others.
For those who don’t know yet, Canonical has been working a lot at Ubuntu Touch, the mobile version of Ubuntu. While the initial plan was to make it available for all the Google Nexus smartphones and tablets, the developers have dropped the support for Galaxy Nexus, Google Nexus 7 2012 and Google Nexus 10, Ubuntu Touch being officially available only for the Google Nexus 4 smartphone and the Google Nexus 7 2013 tablet.
Until now, there aren’t a lot of applications for Ubuntu Touch available, Canonical’s Mark Shuttleworth hopes that by the time the first Ubuntu Touch powered phones hit the market, the top 50 Android/iOS apps will be available for Ubuntu Touch.
Also worth mentioning, Mark’s Shuttleworth big dream is to reach full desktop-mobile convergence somewhere between the releases of Ubuntu 14.10 and Ubuntu 15.04 (between October 2014 and April 2015).
