As we, er, perhaps failed to note at the time, the Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview launched last week, with Canonical stressing that it’s very much a “work in progress” and “for developers and enthusiasts only”.
Initially there were just four supported devices, but that list is set to expand quite significantly in the presumably near future.
For starters, the Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview was launched for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, LG Google Nexus 4, Asus Google Nexus 7 and Samsung Google Nexus 10.
Under the ‘Sort of working’ section, there are a handful of fairly modest handsets, suggesting that Ubuntu for mobile won’t be too demanding. Most notable are the original HTC Desire (now three years old) and the first Samsung Galaxy S.
Including the ‘Work in progress’ section, we’re looking at well over 20 devices for the Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview.
You can check out the full list of Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview devices right here. Again, don’t get too excited if you see your phone there. The preview “is not intended to replace production devices or the tablet or handset you use every day", and "can potentially brick your device." Consider yourself warned, holmes.
