Ubuntu Touch preview for phone hands-on (Nexus 4)

0. phoneArena posted on 21 Feb 2013, 16:54

Canonical released the Ubuntu Touch Preview today, so obviously we had to wipe our Nexus 4 and load up Ubuntu for a hands-on test. You've likely already seen the videos and release info for Ubuntu's new mobile optimized OS, so we'll just jump into it. The first thing that is important to keep in mind is that the Touch Preview is version 12.10, and the final phone version is planned for 13.10 (October 2013), so this is a very early build, and as such, there are a lot of things missing and not working so well...

Bring on Ubuntu Touch, Tizen and others. More options will be beneficial to consumers and the industry.

Windows Phone user but I wish Ubuntu Success. I'm loving the Underdogs, WP, BB and Conical/Ubuntu.

This looks like a very poor implementation of BB10 on a phone. So is everybody going to put swipe control on their phones like the BB PlayBook had 2+ years ago?

Nokia MeeGo.
The ghost of what could have been a worthy Android competitor.
MeeGo used swipe control first m8.
