AFAIK, not at the moment.

Well, that's the direction that Ubuntu is taking. I am not sure if
enough developers will embrace it so enough good quality mobile
applications are available compared to other platforms.

The way I see it Fedora is pushing to be the best desktop environment.
If this same desktop experience can be ported to a tablet or a mobile
is something that we have yet to see. Just because you can do it it
doesn't mean it is a good idea.
