- What hardware will Ubuntu Touch support? 15 answers
As everybody know, few months ago, ubuntu for phones was released. There was a lot of questions about porting to N9 because N9-s swipe is inspired the OS.
I am just want to ask that there is no developer that is trying to port it? Don´t say its inposible because of A8, I heard some other phones runing Ubuntu for Phones with A8.

So i think its possible to make a beta version for testing.
