Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview Released for Nexus Devices

Ubuntu for Phones

Canonical released their Ubuntu Touch OS developer preview, which includes support for various Nexus devices. Those devices are:

  • Galaxy Nexus
  • Nexus 4
  • Nexus 7
  • Nexus 10

The preview release is not a finished product: there are rough edges, and almost certainly stability issues and bugs throughout the OS. However, Canonical’s latest attempt to find a niche in a mass market device may work. Nexus devices are very hackable, and attract a large enthusiast community (just check out XDA Developers or Rootzwiki for proof). Those enthusiast hackers are willing to flash new operating systems on to their devices to test, and may also be willing to code applications and such for Ubuntu’s latest OS.

So, Nexus owners of the world, are you interested in Ubuntu for your smartphone? Are you going to flash this on your device?
