The release comes with a full SDK and dedicated resources to assist developers in creating Ubuntu Touch apps. Most importantly, Ubuntu 13.10 comes with one UI framework for all devices.

Ubuntu Touch is available to install on LG Nexus 4 and Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The current build however, is intended for development and evaluation purposes only. It is therefore, not recommended for regular users, as it can potentially brick devices.
