Ubuntu Touch aiming to be a usable daily driver by the end of May

0. phoneArena 08 May 2013, 22:22 posted on

Back at the beginning of March, Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth said that Ubuntu Touch would be ready to be a daily driver by mid-March. Obviously that never happened, but it sounds like we may finally be close. It isn't guaranteed to happen, but Canonical is setting a goal to have Ubuntu Touch be "usable" by the end of May...

It is planned to run on all devices, high and low end. Canonical is hoping to have the platform gain steam in emerging markets, so it will definitely be optimized for low-end handsets.

from what i've read, if your device already has CM10.1 then you should be able to get Ubuntu touch ported over "easily"... apparently the phone boots into CM10.1 then chroots into Ubuntu... or something like that :P

i wonder if there will be any customization on Ubuntu touch... one thing I really really want for android to adopt is the gesture based navigation, buttons are sooo last century!
