    Ubuntu touch availibility on other devices.

    Ubuntu Touch looks interesting and fun to use. I was just wondering when ubuntu tablets finally come out and 14.04 is ready on release day, will Ubuntu touch be downloadable to install on tablets like you can install ubuntu on pretty much any pcs? Or is The google Nexus based tablets going to be the only thing you can install it on?

    It is not possible to make one operating system image that will run on all tablets or all phones. Not possible at the moment.

    Certain Nexus devices are officially supported as "development devices". Some other phones are supported by community ports. The real intent of Ubuntu Touch is to be preinstalled on new phone models.

    The release of Ubuntu 14.04 does not change anything. You can already get Ubuntu Touch.

    That is not the aim of official Ubuntu development. Four Nexus devices were chosen for official developers to develop Ubuntu Touch on. The official Touch images are for these devices but this should still be viewed as a developer install and not a user install.

    And this is what you get as of today if you install it a Nexus 7 2013.
