Ubuntu for tablets: an intriguing mix of Windows 8, Android, and Kindle (hands-on)
Canonical unveiled its Ubuntu phone OS last month, and a tablet friendly version this week. The company is betting on creating an operating system that will mimic its desktop OS on mobile platforms. Tomorrow, a developer preview will be released for Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 owners to install and try out. I got the chance to take a closer look at the operating system today, and it’s clear Canonical is mixing together the best bits from its rivals.
