With the latest Ubuntu Touch image there is now support for running Mir on the Google Nexus 10 tablet.

Canonical developers already had Mir running on four drivers/devices from Android via the libhybris project driven by Mer/Jolla developers. With the 3.12.13 image as of yesterday, the Nexus 10 is working with Mir in place of Android's SurfaceFlinger.

Didier Roche wrote in an ubuntu-phone mailing list post yesterday, "Image 44 contains some ofono changes and 45 enables Nexus 10 running on Mir \o/ Nice work guys!" The Google Nexus 10 Android tablet is powered by a Samsung Exynos 5 Dual SoC with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 processor and Mali T604 graphics.
