Canonical, which backs the Ubuntu Linux operating system, is unveiling an "exclusive Ubuntu concept design" at CES next week.

Most of the coverage of Linux in CES 2012 will be focused on Android, but now it looks like the Ubuntu operating system will be making a showing as well — Canonical, which backs Ubuntu Linux, will be releasing an "exclusive Ubuntu concept design" at the convention. It will also be showcasing the Ubuntu One cloud storage service.

That's all we know for now, but it's possible we'll be seeing one of the Ubuntu phones or tablets that were previously slated for 2014. The tablet-friendly Unity UI has been out for some time, and Canonical has said it plans to partner with manufacturers to ship the OS baked-in, so it wouldn't be a huge surprise if we saw a design for a dedicated Ubuntu device next week.
