User Stories:

1. As someone with ubuntu-desktop installed on my system, I'd like to be able to apt-get some target and have preconfigured android development tools installed onto my system such as adb and fastboot as well as other appropriate android developer tools.

2. As someone with ubuntu-desktop installed on my system, I'd like to be able to apt-get or obtain via some method android images from Linaro or Linaro Android WIPs into my adb environment.

Headline: Users are now able to install and use the Android Developer tools such as adb and fastboot at the Ubuntu LEB images.
Acceptance: Installing Ubuntu LEB image, use apt-get install to install the Android Developer tools and being able to use it without any major issue.
