Ubuntu Touch appeared on Android smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Nexus earlier this year, and the Linux operating system now appears to have tablets in its sights. Ubuntu developer Canonical has begun teasing that it will make an important announcement for mobile devices tomorrow. A countdown clock on its official website says "Tick, tock, tablet time!" and is scheduled to end tomorrow at 11 AM.
Tomorrow's announcement is likely to be a preview version of Ubuntu Touch for tablets, a project that Canonical has been working on for several months. Though Ubuntu has been ported to work on tablets in the past, the most recent example being a Google Nexus 7, tomorrow's announcement may be the first to have a tablet-targeted version of the operating system with better touch controls and navigation built-in.
Canonical are scheduled to make the announcement minutes after HTC will wrap up its announcement of a new Android smartphone tomorrow morning, so February 19 is shaping up to be a busy day for mobile.source: Ubuntu, via: Phone Arena
