An early report by ZDNet points to Ubuntu being released on mobile devices next year, a move expected to be announced by Mark Shuttleworth later today at the Ubuntu Developer Summit.

Shuttleworth is set to kick off the event with a keynote, detailing plans for Ubuntu in 2012. Part of those plans include the open source software appearing on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs.

Canonical, Shuttleworth’s company that supports Ubuntu, has been in talks with hardware partners for the past 18 months, though no specific hardware vendors have been named and there is no concrete timeline for product availability as yet.

Canonical will focus on enterprise desktop stabilisation and platform improvement for the first half of 2012, which will culminate in the Ubuntu 12.04 release, scheduled for an April launch. After the 12.04 release, the focus will reportedly shift to mobile development.
