Hi

Does anyone know if there's any other devices besides the Samgsung Galaxy Nexus, that the Ubuntu Phone OS will work on (without too much hacking)?

I've got an old Google Nexus One phone that needs to be replaced really soon.
I know that Cannonical is using the Galaxy Nexus as a reference device (which makes sense), but I would really like a more current phone.
Has Canonnical leaked information about newer devices they tested?

Thanks :-D

Any phone that is compatible with the "Complete Linux Installer" app for rooted android phones should work, is my guess. I have Ubuntu installed on my nexus 4 via using that app.

Thanks, that makes sense and the Nexus 4 looks like it has the specs I'm looking for - although one without actual buttons would make more sense for Ubuntu OS.
