Well the "HDMI" requirement probably only applies if you want to use a monitor. I really want to install ubuntu touch on my phone, is there a list of all supported hardware pieces available?

I am curious if it could work with

Does this mean that ubuntu touch only works with those phones? I thought that the important thing is the hardware inside my phone. Like if the cpu / gpu in my phone already works in an already phone it should also work with my phone. – Maik Klein Mar 28 '13 at 2:55
