You could go Ubuntu's way and use Qt with QML:


Other than that, Sugar for tablets (as you proposed) can use the existing Sugar interface, including swiping from the center to a corner or edge to access the Frame; but one should also be able to touch that corner or edge directly and see the Frame.

>> This system should be called "Sugar on a Phone" (translators: "Sugar" should not be translated); it should be based on Android 4.4 "KitKat" (code name based on a trademark of Mars, Inc., with no infringement intended; this was the latest stable version of Android for smartphones as of the time of writing).
>> The following control panels should exist:
>> 'About Me'
>> 'About My Phone'
>> 'Background'
>> 'Date and Time'
>> 'Keyboard'
>> 'Language'
>> 'Network'
>> 'Power'
>> 'Phone Services'
>> 'Software Update'
>> 'Web Services'
>> Users should speed-dial "1" to receive any voice mail. There should not be a Frame; instead, all the information which would be on the Frame will be in an information screen.
