The new Google Nexus 5 handset will not become a reference device for Ubuntu Touch development, Canonical's engineers have confirmed.
An updated version of Ubuntu for testing on the Nexus7 tablet has been released.
Google's Nexus 7 tablet is, as Mark Shuttleworth revealed last week, to be Ubuntu's 'reference' device on which the 'core' of Ubuntu will be tweaked. By 'viewing Ubuntu through a mobile lens' developers will be address CPU, RAM and power usage issues, making them better. The net result is that all devices - tablet, desktop or TV, will benefit.
Ubuntu's shift onto tablets and mobiles is now afoot, as a new video demoing Ubuntu on a Nexus 7 shows.
