Linux Canonical recently announced that they are developing a tablet version of their popular Ubuntu operating system, slated to be released in 2011. This comes hot on the heels of the release of the Apple iPad, and the rumors that HP plans to release a WebOS-based tablet sometime late 2010. However, Canonical's foray into the tablet arena is fundamentally different from both the iPad and a WebOS tablet, and unfortunately reeks of a company failing to learn from their competitors successes and failures.

The new MeeGo tablet looks very competitive, I'd much rather buy it over the ipad.

... and there's no reason (apart from NIH) why Ubuntu couldn't integrate the Tablet UX that will be created in context of MeeGo.
