@lakotaubp Thank you. You have pointed out my silly mistake. My Nexus 7 is indeed the 2012 model and I should have observed the physical differences when watching the video. So if I want to brick my N7 I'll go ahead and try to install ununtu touch. Errm, not a good idea. Pity, as I'm hugely appreciative of Ubuntu since starting to use it as my day to day OS on my PCs.

RE: Misunderstanding about ubuntu touch on Nexus 7
RE: how can I test ubuntu touch on my windows PC??
There's really no point doing that. May I suggest that you consider downloading Ubuntu Desktop https://www.ubuntu.com/#download and trying it out live from a USB device or DVD without changing your PC's Operating System. https://tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/try-ubuntu-before-you-install#0 . I've been delighted in using Ubuntu as the Operating System on all my PCs since 2008. Very soon I hope to install Ubuntu Touch on my devices currently running the Android Operating System.
Are my Nexus 7 tablet and Motorola Moto G 4G phone supported please?
I have a Nexus 7 tablet Released 2012, July and a Motorola Moto G 4G phone (2nd Generation running Android 6.0).
I've been delighted in using Ubuntu on my PCs since 2008 and was disappointed when the Unity Everywhere project was discontinued.
I'd like to install Ubuntu touch on both devices starting with the Motorola phone and would welcome advice on how to start doing that. If I do, will I be able to use the Motorola not only as a Touch device but as a cellnet phone. Also will I be able to revert the phone back to running Android as it does now? Thank you.
