Well if the entire top layer of the OS is basically web-based, then by extension wouldn't that make all "native" applications web-based as well? If it flops it flops, but who knows how it will turn out. I've obviously never used it so I don't know what it is like. As much as I'm against Ubuntu on the desktop (and I have been for years), I think Ubuntu Touch has the best chance of competing with Android (both technically and on the market). Note that I'm leaving iOS and Windows Phone out here though (I personally don't want to go all-closed again).
