Canonical revealed Ubuntu for tablets

The Ubuntu Family is now on 4 screens! The new is official: a tablet version of the OS will arrive next year.

In London, Canonical, Ubuntu Linux’s parent company, revealed its new tablet interface. This, according to the company, is its “next step towards one unified family of experiences for personal computing on phones, tablets, PCs and TVs.”

ubuntu_the_human_touchThe tablet-orientated version of Ubuntu is based on Ubuntu Touch – the same version used on Ubuntu Phones – so is gesture-heavy in use. Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 owners will be able to download and ‘flash’ Ubuntu Touch onto their devices this coming Thursday.

Ubuntu’s tablet interface maintains the same gesture-driven control as its upcoming phone OS, and inherits the elegant design of its desktop parent. More importantly for Canonical, their partners, and end-users, this establishes the Ubuntu operating system on four screens: Tablet, desktop, phone, and TV.

Multi-tasking productivity meets elegance and rigorous security in our tablet experience,” said Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu and Canonical in a press call. “Our family of interfaces now scales across all screens, so your phone can provide tablet, PC and TV experiences when you dock it. That’s unique to Ubuntu and it’s the future of personal computing.”

Here’s Shuttleworth explaining the tablet interface:

The full release, for users, will be available in Ubuntu 13.10 in October. The full, ready-for-anyone version will be out in Ubuntu 14.04 in April 2014. Shuttleworth also said in today’s conference call that Canonical has just signed a deal with “a very large supplier of silicon to mobile industry [who] will be optimizing Ubuntu on their chips.” Further details on this partnership will be revealed at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week.
