Ubuntu Tablet Announced – The Wait Is Over

Ubuntu Tablet

So the wait is over and we finally know what the Ubuntu countdown timer was all about. Ubuntu have announced “Ubuntu for tablets”.

Now before you all go rushing out to purchase an Ubuntu tablet and trade in for your Nexus 7 or iPad mini’s, you are going to be sadly disappointed. As of yet there isn’t a device as such, this is simply an announcement to tell us that they’re coming. Much like the recent Ubuntu Phone OS announcement. The Ubuntu team have this to say:

If you’re not in the mobile industry, but you’re as excited as we are about Ubuntu on tablets, we can alert you by email when the first device is released.

From the Ubuntu for Tablet mini site it certainly looks like an exciting announcement and the Ubuntu mobile OS running on a tablet look fantastic. If you want to find out more you can head on over to the Ubuntu for Tablets mini site yourself.

What do you think about this announcement? Is it too soon to be announcing these kind of devices as there isn’t even a phone released yet? Or is saturating the market with what looks like some awesome devices (or operating systems at least) a really great idea? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section below…
