    Re: Ubuntu phone OS

    Looks interesting but that's just speculation until I actually get my hands on a ubuntu phone. I hope you guys are smart and do something like the nexus 4 that is sold for a reasonable price. Would be nice if it shipped with an unlocked bootloader for installing android if i do not enjoy the experience.
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    I got that feeling at the announcement too. Actually, Mark seems much more "alive" than a lot of the other speakers from other companies. At least he didn't LOOK like he was trying to be another Steve Jobs.

    Kudos to Canonical for trying to ramp up business and awareness!

    It is also not a bad time to jump into the mobile business:
    1. Microsoft is only just beginning and has a long way before it wedges into a "big 3" mobile OS position
    2. People are seeing tha there are alternatives to phone OSs and so may be more willing to jump ship to something more
    3. Apple hasn't produced the innovation of years of old so there may be marketshare to gain
    4. Getting the Ubuntu brand recognized in ANY market helps ALL of Ubuntu's markets
    5. I haven't found a phone I really, really like yet...

    So with QML on the phone, and Qt5, in time GTK will be -GONE-? As will gnome?

    Please keep the thread on track. The topic is the phone, not good and bad about Mark S's personality.

    If Canonical is to be able to continue to offer FLOSS Ubuntu, it needs to earn money. That's just a fact of life. I fully support Canonical in making money from its new venture.

    I don't know where you get the idea of "DRM-laden" and "closed" from, though, as Ubuntu is open-source and has no DRM.

    We are all equal here apart from mods who are less equal

    If you want to suggest ideas to Canonical try http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/

    And that link was just demonstrating the spec requirements for a phone.

    It is Open source, I doubt it will be tied to a specific regardless of what it is released on, the specs are there so you can see if your phone supports it

    Sweet it uses QML for apps. That's loads better than java IMHO.

    Hope this goes somewhere...
