I will get a review video up later tonight!

Well that's your problem right there. CDMA. That has so many stipulations and all that stuff around it. THATS why. I don't blame them for not supporting it.

http://www.ubuntu.com/tablet Sorry to bring up an old thread but i didnt want to make a new one. Anyways i was interested in ubuntu because it looked so smooth and awesome. I was just wondering is there going to be an official build for the nexus 10? Is there even another version released since the preview? That link i posted at the beginning of this post shows the nexus 10 is the tablet they have pictures of on. The website wasnt very clear if there was anything out yet or not. Also would android apps work with ubuntu? Just a couple questions sorry for hijacking the thread but thought it would fit here. Anybody else interested in it and have more info? if there is then ill make a new thread in general for discussion.
Devices: Nexus 10 and Verizon LG G2

Okay I'll answer for you then

Let's start:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Install - You can find images for Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus there! Nexus 10 is already one of the devices that will receive official support ! Just remembering that it's not usable yet! I installed some days ago and it was still laggy and sluggish, at least for me :s

As answered already many times on Ubuntu Q&A: No! Ubuntu bases on Android kernel (which is also based on Linux kernel), but has many different things, including Dalvik (correct me if I'm wrong please), so it won't run the android apps.

That is a nice idea IMO . Just be sure there's no other thread like that already .

Hope this covers up things for you

OK thanks that was really helpful. I figured android apps wouldn't work after reading more about it. Anyways the interface looks amazing in the video and they said it is really easy for developers to get their apps working on Ubuntu as well so once the final build is released im going to install it for sure. It would be awesome if we could dual boot it once its ready. My xperia play phone has a kernel for it that can multiboot GB,ICS, and jellybean thanks to cosmicdan. It'd be awesome if we could get that working on the nexus 10. I think I'll make a discussion thread so I don't hijack this thread and spam it, but first I'll search to make sure there already isn't one
