Ubuntu Mobile OS will be made available for developers to install on their Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4 devices on February 21. The new mobile operating system by the creators of the Ubuntu Linux distribution will be compatible with those two devices and Canonical will be at Mobile World Congress flashing compatible devices for users who want to check it out.

The new operating system is sleek. This is partly due to the fact that the OS will be launching without an app store, something that seems like it would make the operating system dead on arrival. However, Canonical says they are looking at going after users who want to use a core set of applications.

Come February 21, we should start seeing more information about the operating system including more hands-on time and thoughts regarding how it works.
