When will it be possible to download ubuntu to install on tablet devices? I've got a few tablets which i would love to install ubuntu onto. For instance I've got a kindle which I hate having to go on amazon to download aps. It would be cool if i could install ubuntu on it as then I would have the freedom to do things I want without having the hassle of amazon watching what I download.

The process of installing Ubuntu is different for each type of tablet. You would have better luck if you either asked separate questions including the make and model of each tablet, or if you searched the internet for guides for each one. –  Richard Sep 5 '13 at 20:39

OP is looking for a way to install Ubuntu on a tablet. The Ubuntu Phones and Tablets are going to have Ubuntu preinstalled by the OEM. –  Richard Sep 5 '13 at 20:45

For installing Ubuntu Touch (the developer edition, just a preview) on the Kindle Fire and other tablets, see here. That is a list of all the currently supported touch devices. In the column on the right you can find instructions on how to install Ubuntu on the device.

An odd guide on how to do this with the Desktop version (?): here

For example, this is the page for the Kindle Fire 1st gen: wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices/otter and 2nd gen: wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices/otter2 –  Richard Sep 5 '13 at 20:52
