I'm running 11.10 ar present. In nautilus it shows the device as allan
says. It actually lists file and folder structure and an can actually even
copy a file over.

The problem is that nautilus shows the size of the device as 1gb with only
60mb free space. It as 16gb device which is mostly empty. Copying files
over fail due to disk space error. Apperently from android 3.0 they use mtp
to mount device rather than mass storage mode. Guessing its only a matter
of time until linux support is improved

There is also an article on omg ubuntu which i have just found talking
about the same thing. Cant get their instructions to work though:
