The first working image for the x86 Ubuntu Touch Emulator is now available.

Ricardo Salveti de Araujo of Canonical shared that over the weekend every needed package was approved and as a result they have published their first working image of the x86 Ubuntu Phone/Touch emulator.

There's ubuntu-emulator and ubuntu-emulator-runtime packages that provide the Touch Emulator but those not running the Ubuntu 14.10 development OS will need to add the Phablet Team's PPA for getting the working support.

The emulator is now working for the x86 version of Ubuntu Phone/Touch but not all of the applications for its ecosystem are available for x86 but some are only for ARM. There's also still a handful of bugs, but you can learn more via the ubuntu-phone announcement.
