The mobile industry is currently a battle between two main platforms -- iOS and Android -- and although the fringe parties are struggling to keep up with Apple and Google's respective ecosystems, this hasn't deterred Canonical from taking its famed Ubuntu flavor of Linux and bringing it to the small(er) screen. Today, the company has released the first "true" version of Ubuntu Touch for mobile with the Ubuntu 13.10 update, and it has been optimized for a couple of Google's most significant smartphone releases including the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and LG Nexus 4.
Ubuntu is trying desperately to transition from hugely popular enthusiast platform to mainstream competitor for Mac OS X and Windows.

For the better part of the last few months, Ubuntu has been wowing technology enthusiasts and developers alike with its new flavors aimed at post-PC devices, including smartphones and tablets, known as Ubuntu Touch.

As promised, Canonical has delivered its Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview to a bunch of Nexus smartphones and tablets.

Over the last few months, Ubuntu has branched out to smartphones and TVs, maintaining the underlying operating system while incorporating especially-designed user interfaces for each device. Today, Ubuntu has gone after a form factor that has received much press lately: tablets.
Linux enthusiasts rejoiced at the news that Canonical would be bringing Ubuntu to the mobile realm, and although it was promised a developer preview would be available for the Galaxy Nexus at some point early this year, it now looks as though the Nexus 4 will be joining it. From 21st of February, anybody in ownership of either device will be able to get a first look at the OS, which is set to release at some point in October, and although developers may not be leaping out their seats in excitement, it's hard not to take at least a fleeting interest in its progress.
Both Linux and smartphone enthusiasts everywhere have been eagerly looking forward to Ubuntu’s mobile operating system, which was first shown off to the world at the beginning of last month. Building up on the excitement, Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu, has announced that devices running Ubuntu Phone OS will finally hit shelves in October of this year, just in time for this year’s holiday season, as opposed to 2014 as it had first been announced.
