Canonical introduces the Ubuntu tablet interface, which will compete with Android, iOS, and Windows with its own take on multitasking and advanced security features. Canonical claims that future versions of Ubuntu will be able to run an Ubuntu app across four different user interfaces (desktop, TV, smartphone and tablet) with no need for special programming for each version. Users can start testing the interface on Feb. 21, when the Touch Developer Preview of Ubuntu will be published with installation instructions for the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets, as well as smartphones such as the Nexus 4 and Galaxy Nexus. The new Ubuntu tablet OS can be differentiated with partner branding, content, services and apps and has been specifically designed with operator and OEM customisation in mind. Watch the promotional video about the Ubuntu Tablet OS and see it in action. Canonical explains: “Our unique interface design scales from the phone to the tablet, and works equally well on pocketable consumer-oriented tablets from 7″ up, and full-blown media or enterprise tablets with screens from 10″ to 20″ and high definition resolution. And since there are no physical buttons needed beyond the power switch, you have more flexibility for incredible device design with Ubuntu than any other platform today.”
