Ubuntu has had a version designed for use in mobile devices, and it has received a significant upgrade thanks to Canonical.  Phoronix took a look at Netbook Remix, you can see pictures of the interface in their article.  It will be a while before we see mobile devices shipping with it, but they will arrive and Phoronix is looking forward to testing at least one Intel Atom-powered device in the near future.

"Canonical's Netbook Remix won't be appearing on mobile devices until later this year -- and these software changes are still very

much under development -- but interested parties can already check out the source-code and Debian packages for this work.

Canonical is publishing this work under the GNU GPLv3 license. For now this work isn't available through any of the Ubuntu

repositories, but the packages are hosted within a Launchpad PPA (Personal Package Archive)."
