Ubuntu for Tablets Demoed on Nexus 10 – Video

A lot of features will be missing from the Touch Developer Preview

Ubuntu's Touch Developer Preview for tablets is set to be launched today, but among all the hype and ruckus people haven't noticed that it's going to lack a lot of features.

In all fairness, Canonical did explain that this was a version for developers and enthusiasts, but it wasn't clear what features would be integrated.

According to an Engadget interview with a couple of Canonical representatives, the Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview will only come with a few apps, such as camera, gallery, phone, and a couple others. Users will be unable to import their own contacts or to play music.

Being a development release, it was to be expected that certain functionalities would be missing. Nonetheless, the operating system is performing very well and from the looks of it, Ubuntu will make a serious contender.
