Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu After desktops and phones, Ubuntu is now bringing its Linux distribution to tablets. Coming Thursday, preview images for Google's Nexus tablets will be released, so we can all get a good long look at what Canonical is cooking up. They've published a YouTube video which details all that Ubuntu has to offer for tablets, and to be honest, it's looking quite good.

Ubuntu for tablets (the one which runs on Nexus 7) is not the same as Ubuntu Phone underneath

Where did you verify that?

Tablet Ubuntu is regular Unity. Ubuntu Phone is a totally different beast based on Qt.

I don't see how is that relevant, you don't program for unity, you program for the OS it self, and you use the API, that it will be probably shared among versions.

Unity 2D is written in Qt. If this whole phone/tablet business pans out, I bet the regular Unity won't be GTK for long, either.

That's not Ubuntu Tablet. That's the ARM version of the regular ubuntu distribution, with instructions on how to install it on a tablet. Ubuntu Tablet will be available after MWC so we don't know what it's based on yet.
