The developer community has been hard at work again, this time with the Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview. As of just a few hours ago there was 19 device models with “sort of working” Touch Preview builds. There was also “work in progress” builds for over 20 devices. We have made it easy by posting both categories below.

I’m starting to get the feeling that the open-source developer community is going to get finalized builds out way before the long awaited October release date of the official Touch Preview. Maybe this was all just a huge ploy to get the bulk of the work done for free? Who knows, all I know is I can’t wait to see what lies ahead for Ubuntu!

That’s pretty good work in the last week. If you don’t see your device, I;m sure down the road you will end up getting a build. The list is growing daily so don’t lose hope!
