      Seems unlikely given that they announced Mir in March. I've only heard late August/early September.

        This is what made me think they wanted to have Mir on Ubuntu Touch a lot earlier.

        Currently the Phablet image uses SurfaceFlinger to render. But very soon, this will be replaced with Mir and eventually the tablet will use the same infrastructure as the desktop image:
        The image shows the Ubuntu Touch stack on Mir in May '13.

        Maybe the ran into more roadblocks than expected, which gives the impression that the Mir developers don't have a lot experience in this field.
