    Ubuntu for Android

    Now I know a lot of you are probably already aware of this but Ubuntu is soon to available to some Android Devices.

    Canonical are officially releasing Ubuntu Touch on the following devices:

    Galaxy Nexus
    Nexus 4
    Nexus 7
    Nexus 10

    However some of the clever so-and-so's over at XDA have begun porting the images over to other devices:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices

    I have the SGS2 - GT-i9100 and am going to be trying this very shortly. I am hoping to Dual-Boot as the Calls/SMS portion of the image doesn't work at the minute but I have to say it all looks very impressive.

    Anyone feel like trying it and reporting back their impressions/experiences??

    EDIT: Dual booting doesn't work

    Well, i've took the plunge. It is VERY smooth!! There are some issues with it as a daily rom but I can see this being big!

    The hardware buttons at the bottom of my phone don't work and it's quite strange learning how to navigate it without them and I can't figure out how to access my SD Cards, but all in all it's a very nice OS to use. Now to figure out how to restart my phone......
