More devices to be compatible with Ubuntu Touch
It seems that the things with Ubuntu Touch are becoming pretty serious. A group of XDA developers has taken the initiative and is working to help Canonical build the perfect Ubuntu as fast as possible. As you may know, the system is expected as early as 2014, but Canonical launched a website with daily builds to track the development.
There are three sections in the website. The ‘Running Fine’ section, for a pity, lists only four devices for now – Nexus 4,7,10 and Galaxy Nexus, but the ‘Sort of Working’ section gives us some hopes that there will be more compatible devices soon. 15 devices are listed there they are Xperia T and S, Galaxy S, SIII (Verizon), Note, Note II, Tab and Nexus, Asus Transformer Infinity and Pad TF300T, HTC Desire and DNA, Huawei Ascend G300, LG Nitro/Optimus HD and Nexus One.
However, The Work in Progress section is the largest. Here you can spot Alcatel OT-995, Galaxy SII, SIII, S SCL, Note i717, as well as the AT&T version of SIII, HTC Desire S, One XL, One X+, One X, Dell Streak 7, Asus Transformer, Nexus S, Motorola Droid 3, 4, Bionic, RAZR and Motorola XOOM, LG Optimus 4x HD, and Kindle Fire 1st and 2nd Generation, as well as HD 7’’ and 8.9’’.
The website also explains how you can get involved and contribute for the development of Ubuntu Touch. Let’s hope that all this efforts will bring the system to us soon!
