Ubuntu Touch is the new Ubuntu-based OS for phones and tablets. Announced at the beggining of 2013, it gives a new UI and design proposal, but also a new way of developing and supporting many different devices, using either the Android HAL or the traditional Linux stack to build the platform. This talk will go over the Ubuntu Touch internals, presenting the technical decisions and also the work that was done to bootstrap this new platform (camera, radio, video decode, GLES and etc) and the future chalenges to support a single stack across mobile and the traditional desktop.
