Check it out. GNex is also the only officially supported device at the moment.

Seems cool but it doesn't support any android apps from what they said. Seems kind of inconvenient and there isn't any code available to the public yet.

Can you run normal ubuntu/linux applications, or do they have to be modified for the phone OS?

Oh man I can't wait for devs to start tinkering. This would almost make me ditch android and put this on my nexus.

I can't wait to get a taste of this. I needed something to breath new life into this phone.

I would imagine it would be like windows 8 where you have to have specific phone optimized programs

I predict this will fail miserably. It looks pretty but so does Unity and most agree that it runs like piss. No Android/Google apps will doom it. Unless a major manufacturer jumps on this I don't see this as anything more than something to play around with. I hope I'm wrong but doubt it.

Thats what I'm thinking too, at least when it come to a GUI. Terminal apps tho? That might be interesting.

If they've made it this far would've you agree that apps would be soon to follow? I guess I'm just trying to be optimistic, as this would rock not to mention blow the competition out of the running.
