up to now nobody stepped up to show a running Ubuntu Touch on the
OpenPhoenux GTA04, but technically it should absolutely be possible.

Currently the GTA04 comes pre-installed with Debian, which is very
similar to the Ubuntu system. Also I easily installed and ran
Ubuntu-Core once. Running the Ubuntu Touch GUI should only be a matter
of apt-get install'ing the missing parts and doing a correct
configuration (this is probably the harder part). Even (non-free) 3D
drivers are available, if needed for the Ubuntu Touch GUI.

Best regards,
