Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, 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.
While Ubuntu Touch is not yet available for Google Nexus 5, Mark Shuttleworth has announced at vUDS that Nexus 7 2013 got official Ubuntu Touch support:
“Super excited about it, seems to perform really beautifully, I just flash this one today, and it came straight up, no issues. I guess that the team has promoted this device (Nexus 7 2013) into the official supported category,”
Also worth mentioning, Canonical has recently announced that Meizu and BQ will be the first two Ubuntu Touch phone manufacturers. And this is not all. There are rumors that the Geeksphone developers are already working with Canonical, in order to add support for Ubuntu Touch on their Geeksphone Revolution, the first Firefox OS/Android phone.
