It all looks good and sounds nice, but I don't see it becoming big.
I think Android will evolve together with Chrome OS into a really good OS.
For sure I want to try out ubuntu on my 10.1 tablet, but it will never get a big userbase. (just my oppinion

Re: Ubuntu for Tablets Anounced
Looks pretty easy. I will do it today. Finally something interesting besides cm for tablets. Most ROMs are either cm clones or simply not tablet friendly, which is why I haven't worked on much here.

Re: Ubuntu for Tablets Anounced
It would be nice to see Ubuntu Touch on our tab. Waiting for a P7500 test buid (low-end version?) if possible.

I am quite the optimist so here's to hoping!

Not really. If the device supports CM 10.1 (which it does), then it supports Ubuntu. Canonical even posted a full guide. Problem is, who's going to do it?

Edit: Okay, I guess we do have someone to do it. So there's hope

Re: Ubuntu for Tablets Anounced
Sorry. I've been trying, but it hasn't been syncing. I'll try on my build server when i get a chance. Hopefully by this weekend, I will have a chance. Not sure why the sources won't download locally but my server should have no issue.
