Linux on ARMThe Nexus 7 tablet may be Google's flagship Android tablet. But it has a bootloader that can be unlocked, a powerful 1.2 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and 1GB of RAM. In other words, it should be perfectly capable of running other operating systems.

So it's not surprising that the folks at Canonical seem to be using Google's $199 tablet as a reference platform for Ubuntu for tablets.

Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth recently suggested that developers should bring Nexus 7 tablets to the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Copenhagen starting October 29th.

Now Ubuntu developer Victor Palau has posted a brief video showing Ubuntu on the 7 inch tablet.
