I recently bought Nexus 4 from Google, so would be looking forward to try Ubuntu Phone out.
Indeed. I understand that the Ubuntu phone itself can use a terminal program as well. If I could get terminal access into the full Ubuntu operating system (or Fedora, or Debian, etc. for that matter if it was available) on a phone, I would buy my first smartphone. Just give me a command prompt so I can write code and access other devices via wifi on a device that I can carry in my pocket. I would just buy an unlocked phone (now that unlocking is illegal) and might not even subscribe to phone service.
I have moved the ongoing off-topic discussion regarding unlocking phones to a new home:
I found this interesting with the phone OS.

I spoke to someone over skype and twitter that states he has a manufactured phone (similar to what they demo'd at CES) from China that is running the Ubuntu OS. He says it's awesome and he can dock it and it becomes a full featured desktop. I really wanted to get my hands on it but he said it's illegal because the phone supports 3 different SIM chips. I really wanted him to send it to me so I could create a youtube video for my channel but he won't. Maybe after the image is released by Canonical he will
It would be great having hardware switches to turn off phone modem and wireless.
It will work longer ( on battery ) and can be used by kids with no fear of big bill or possible radiation risk.
