As you can see here:
...you can run Ubuntu on Android now.
(more detail here: http://code.google.com/p/native-android-development/wiki/UbuntuForAndroidDevelopment )
However, I expect that access to most phone features are lost.
Which Android devices run Ubuntu best?
Can the sub $100 tablets on ebay run Ubuntu or are they underpowered for it? Example specs:
CPU VIA 8650( 800MHZ) RAM Hyunda 256MB DDR3 NAND FLASH Samsung 2GB(FAT Disc Format)
EXTERNAL FLASH TF card(Maximum 32GB) SCREEN 7" Multi-Touch Resistive Screen,
16:9/Resolution:800*480, 2-Point Pure Touching for Pictures,Zoom In/Out the pictures Via 2 points
What I'm looking for is a very portable device that is OpenSource (OpenPhone seems to be dead) or can dual boot into Ubuntu. I'd like to be able to dial up a VPN and make a VoIP call over WiFI and be able to see the source code, but something smaller and cheaper than a Netbook would be better. A cheap Android phone seems like a good idea, but I wonder how good driver support is.
I'm asking here because the question is broad and the Ubuntu forums are not like they used to be.
