Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Images and open source code for the Touch Developer Preview of Ubuntu will be published on Thursday 21st February, supporting the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4 smartphones. They are intended for enthusiasts and developers, to familiarise themselves with Ubuntu's smartphone experience and develop applications on spare handsets. Tools that manage the flashing of the phone will be available on the same day in the Ubuntu archives, making it easy to keep a device up to date with the latest version of the Touch Developer Preview." Cool. Too bad it's only for Nexus phones, and not for more popular ones.

Interesting that you mention it should have been for more popular devices than the nexuses.

The nexus devices are the enthusiast devices, because they get all of the latest updates and don't have bloatware like touchwiz installed.

I had thought that the nexus devices were the *most* popular devices amongst enthusiasts, meaning the most likely devices to be owned by anyone who would do any development or would be interested in flashing this image.
