Canonical today announced ubuntu for tablets which gives more clarity about their plans for the whole eco system. It will be available the same day as they release the phone version for galaxy nexus and nexus 4, february 21. The cool thing here is IMO this:

Obviously they show this with the asus padphone in mind but then they show how it also will work as a desktop OS, and further on a media center. So Ubuntu will have 4 different "skins" depending on the usage situation. Imagine the S3 with ubuntu in combination with MHL/allshare + bluetooth keyboard and mouse or most preferably the official multimedia dock giving you USBOTG and MHL simultaneously and this finally will be able to make the S3 (and other phones) the one-device-to-rule-them-all that I've been hoping for since I got it in june.

What I don't know is if there will be problematic with the exynos sources not available, can anyone shed some light on this?
