Talking Points:
Tools/processes
What's gone on currently
How does hardware work? Do the current tools provide proper indentification for what hw is being tested?
How do we familiarize users with testing the android layer used in phablet images ?
Unanswered questions:
What kind of platforms are going to be available for testing, any virtualization on the roadmap?
Virtualizaton will be discussed in the ubuntu SDK session. Platforms for testing include the ubuntu core and ubuntu touch images in addition to everything else ubuntu runs on :-)
