    How would you like an Ubuntu phone?

    I want to buy a phone with Ubuntu in 2014.
    My dream Ubuntu phone would be:

    A slide phone with Qwerty-keyboard and touchpad. A 4 inch screen (no touchscreen). With Wi-fi and a good camera.

    I would like to have a good program to download and listen to podcasts, to watch youtube on it, for it to have a good battery life. Being able to ring people occasionally would be nice.

    If I could buy one for £10 that I can phone and txt on I'd buy one otherwise I'd ignore it just like I ignore the rest

    If it had big buttons so I didn't need glasses I'd pay £15 ...

    Ubuntu's system requirements are too high to make a good phone OS unless it's modified quite a lot or unless phone specs get better.

    Re: How would you like an Ubuntu phone?

    I must admit that since I first read about Mark Shuttleworth's announcement that Ubuntu plan's to go mobile, I've been a bit worried about the possibility of closed licences.

    I have no basis to think like this - let's face it mr shuttleworth does't need the money and isn't ceo anymore anyway, plus he's been devoted to the open source model since the 90's. It's just experience - I don't want Ubuntu to become the new osx/chrome os/possibly android (honeycomb code)

    Doubt it would do, I'm just always a skeptic! In terms of the theory, I can't see the need/demand myself, but choice is always a good thing, and if canonical as a whole can do for mobile os's what they've done for linux it can only be a good thing!
