Canonical is planning to announce a version of Ubuntu Linux for mobile devices in the first week of June.

Canonical, which was founded by IT entrepreneur Mark Shuttleworth, is planning to unveil Netbook Remix, and is working with Intel on the project.

Shuttleworth told the Guardian, "We are announcing it in the first week of June. It is called the Netbook Remix. We are working with Intel, which produces chips custom-made for this sector."

Loss-making Ubuntu is hoping a mobile version of its Linux OS will revive its fortunes.

Up to now, mobile devices running Linux have mainly found a market in countries such as China and the Far East.
