Ubuntu Tablet Concept by spiceofdesign Ubuntu Tablet Concept by spiceofdesign
With Canonical having confirmed a Tablet version of Ubuntu in the works, I thought I'd take a shot at a Tablet concept in an Ubuntu Style.

The first screen is just an unlock screen, nothing too fancy there, with a numeric password unlock.

The second screen is the home hub. The hub has many different views, the icons to switch between them shown at the bottom (home, applications, search, running applications (which disappears if no applications are open), documents, photos, music, videos, preferences). There could be more views added, such as downloads or social views. At the top is the title and indicators bar, and in the middle running applications (I know I have repeated the same application three times, but I was being lazy here).

The third view is a standard application view.

Most of the icons are Elementary, or Elementary based, and the font is Ubuntu.

Made in Inkscape 0.48

Looks like a WebOS design and control! I loved WebOS for mobile devices its controls were perfect for small smartphones mostly.

My gosh, this is just flat-out amazing! Excellent work! It kinda reminds me of the Blackberry Playbook OS. If they were to get Ubuntu on tablets, it would be far more popular, considering how popular tablets are nowadays.

with just a few tweaks, unity would be great on a tablet! If they put unity on the tablet OS them maybe they'll give us back GNOME 2, or should I say MATE...

Why hasn't Canonical hired you yet? By all means, you could probably bring a lot of visual spice to Ubuntu and make it far more usable then Unity, which they seriously need to stop insisting that everyone loves.

Have you seen the job descriptions on Canonical's website? For the design positions they want you to have like a gazillion years experience, and a degree, (neither of which I have since I am still in sixth form), which probably explains why they seem to lack any sort of fresh ideas, since it seems you have to be in your 30s before you start working for them. What I found what was even funnier was the lack of consistency - there were two different styles between the different jobs in the design section alone. Not to mention Canonical's apparent hate of margins and padding?

I would seriously love to work there, but I doubt they would ever hire me. :(

Sounds like their just passing up on someone with so much skill and potential such as yourself. This is why Ubuntu still hasn't made it so mainstream, Canonical does nothing but shoot itself in the foot. Then they cry and wonder what their doing wrong. Heck, their losing popularity among the Linux crowd itself. That is not a positive outlook at all if I say so myself. I think they need to revise the company framework, cut the ego and prestige, and actually compete if they really wanna go mainstream.

I agree, Ubuntu was my first Linux distribution, but after they introduced Unity, I jumped ship to elementary OS, (although I even tried Fedora for a week). They may be attracting some new users, they are scaring off long time users, which is bad because it is those users whole file bug reports, and fix them, not people who are just getting started. It's a real shame its going this way.

That looks absolutely beautiful.

Have you considered seeing if theres any interest from the KDE Active team for some design help? Looks like they have a product thats already working on tablets, unfortunately it is unbelievably ugly.

Will they ever get that white icons on a white background looks bad? Do KDE have any designers that realise it's no longer 2003?

Is that calendar app based on something in elementary? It looks familiar.
On a related note, this would make for a great UI for elementary. Not that it wouldn't excel in Ubuntu, but I think Canonical is too busy caught up in the idea that Unity is the holy grail to go for something less "unified", i guess.

Yes, it's elementary's calendar app Maya. I do have to agree that Canonical seems to be spending to much time on Unity, which they keep insisting everyone likes. Whilst it did attract a lot of new users, many long-time users (myself included) jumped ship and went elsewhere, since the first release was so laggy.

I really like this. Just one thing, are window controls really necessary? Just thinking about how you use an iPad or Android tablet neither of them have them but instead have a task switcher or a way back to the home screen. Maybe have them only available on the overview screen?

? The only windows controls are at the task switcher, which is part of the home hub.

I assumed the green, blue and red buttons in the top left were funky window controls. My bad.
