    There are quite a few apps that need to be available for people to consider an Ubuntu phone/tablet. For example whatsapp and skype. I doubt they'll be available natively any time soon. Therefor the Java interperter is very desirable imo!

    that
    Java nonsense
    is why android is where it is.

    It was actually a stroke of genius -

    insulating the application developers to large degree, allowed for the OS to evolve much more quickly.

    Anyone try this yet?
    I know it's just a dev release but I am interested in how functional it is.

    Don't think it's here just yet
    Maybe this can give you a bit of an idea of the functionality:

    It's not available yet. Unless we've got some Canonicalians in our midst, the answer so far is no.

    I'd love to get a Nexus 7 and play around with it, but I can't. We've just taken out a loan to partially pay for a semester of education.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    Oh... I am not expecting to have it work like the video... I just want to have a look under the covers so to speak and see that is there so far.

    Also want to see what the install / uninstall process is like....

    I have found the details about Ubuntu on tablets and it seems today the develop preview Ubuntu for both tablets and smartphones is released.
