    It looks to be partially true.

    So the Ubuntu Phone will be released by March to developers, and released to consumers in October.

    Ambitious? Yeah. Could really shake things up? Yeah! Be cool! Heck Yeah!

    Ubuntu Phone is not a prank, it's a real thing.

    I don't know why but Joey Snendon didn't link to the original. When you read it it doesn't look that official:

    Smartphones running the open source Ubuntu operating system will be available to customers beginning in October 2013, according to Mark Shuttleworth, founder and CEO of Canonical Ltd. Canonical provides services for corporate customers using Ubuntu open source software. Application developers will have access to the smaartphone operating system, which is optimized for the Galaxy Nexus handset manufactured by Samsung Electronics Co. , in late February.
    Did Michael Hickins really interviewed Mark Shuttleworth or is he simply building on previous remarks?

    In any case, if true this is simply great.

    Here is ArsTechnica's take on the issue:

    "October is the very beginning of that timeline, but we're slightly concerned by Canonical's slowness in releasing the phone's open source code." [...] Gadget release times often slip, and with 8 months to go until October we wouldn't be surprised to see that happen. Even if Canonical hits the October timeframe, they'll be playing an extreme version of catchup in a market where iOS and Android dominate and BlackBerry and Windows Phone are duking it out for third place.

    Re: Ubuntu phone OS

    Wow! very inventive, Canonical. I mean, who'd have thought of running an OS on a phone?!

    Genius! Tres bon!


    I'll hold out until April the first; this could be an elaborate joke. If not, I worry for their marketing department; would it surely not be more prudent to focus on getting Ubuntu as prolific as Mac OS X and Windows, and in widespread use?

    Again, LOL.
