Ubuntu for Tablets and Phones has consumed my life for the past 30 hours. Canonical announced a developer preview would be arriving yesterday, and when it hit, I dropped everything I was doing and flashed it to the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. I’ve been playing with it ever since and have mostly good things to say – keeping in mind it is a developer preview and far from any sort of stable release.
In its tablet form, Ubuntu 12.10 Touch isn’t all that different from the phone version. The home screen layout is horizontal, versus the vertical layout on smaller tablets and phones. There is also what Canonical is calling “side stage”, which is a split-screen view where you can use a phone-based application and tablet application simultaneously. Without further ado, I present to you the Ubuntu for Tablets developer preview on the Nexus 10!
