    There was lots of buzz surrounding Canonical's Ubuntu for Android announcement a few years ago. It was said to be the new "3rd OS". It was to be just behind IOS and Andorid. When the product was finally released you could only install it on a handful of devices, and even then I was never able to install a fully working version only a preview build. My interest quickly fizzled, and I'm sure I was not the only one. It seemed as if Ubuntu for Android was dead for ever, but this is not so. Android Authority recently reached out to Canonical to see what exactly happened with Ubuntu for Android. Below is their response.

    It seems that Canonical will be focusing more on Ubuntu for Phones and less on Ubuntu for Android for now.
