Works fine except for installing packages, ubuntu version is old and no more mantained, and tried an upgrade procedure with update-manager -d and didn't work.

Yay, exactly what I have been waiting for. But for the life of me, I can't seem to download the file. Can you upload it to multiupload.com or something?

Will be testing this when i get home! What version of ubuntu is it running? Might even be able to use it for completely replacing my laptop. Need something i can program on, and this might be the ticket!

I hope Google will make an Android SDK that can run on Android now that hardware is getting better.

That may be the best idea for a Nexus tablet announcement I've ever heard. Announcing the first official Google Nexus Tablet, typically great specs, with a great dock/keyboard, and the announcement of an android app Android SDK.

This, plus some really nice plug & play style USB port usage would make for a killer announcement.

I would recommend VNC Viewer, it is $10 but it works much much better than android-vnc-viewer. About 2-3 times smoother than in the videos.

What does it take to get a version of eclipse compiled for arm?
Right now it errors saying "bash: ./eclipse: cannot execute binary file" (Google says that means you have the wrong version. ex 64 on 32 machine).

An ftp server running on android should work fine. There are several in the Market.
