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.

or how Android apps that are not developed with the NDK run inside an enulator that is not even JITed by the hardware (like Java is with Jazelle).


Since ARM v7 Jazelle is deprecated and succeeded by ThumbEE (which is itself deprecated since 2011).

There's no need of instruction sets like Jazelle on newer ARM architectures to accelerate Java bytecode since Dalvik can jit the code itself.
