    have you noticed the ubuntu.com frontpage? http://www.ubuntu.com/

    "Tick, Tock, tablet time! 02:31:05"
    and counting down.

    My guess would be that it is to do with the Nexus 7 installer https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Nexus7 , but it would be nice if it were some custom hardware.

    (its been pointed out that HTC have a similar countdown on their homepage http://www.htc.com/uk/ )

    Well, when it comes to here (Central Europe) I cannot see any countdown.
    Maybe, something is about to come for your local market?

    This other page by HTC has a very similar countdown:

    http://www.htc.com/ro/

    Coincidence?

    The HTC announcement seems to be unrelated.

    Ubuntu site down, but looks like some news sites had the info under embargo http://techcrunch.com/2013/02/19/can...ce=twitterfeed
