Canonical Ubuntu - Now for Tablets

If you're a big Ubuntu user like myself and love it, rejoice! Canonical is developing Ubuntu for tablets. It is based on Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) which is supposed to be release in October. The tablet version will be simplified and touch friendly and will also have on-screen keyboard for all those typing needs. Canonical is currently working with Freescale, Marvell, Texas Instruments, Pixel Qi and Intel  for this project. With Ubuntu 10.10 out in October, my guess is we might be able to see Ubuntu tablets by late fall.

PS - I know I know...that's the UMPC version of Ubuntu but both are still touch screen no?
