    Ubuntu Phone os??

    In the video and the introduction page of ubuntu phone
    They both mentioned that the ubuntu phone just use Android drivers, and in the video, it also mentioned that it runs on Android kernel
    So I wanna ask, I've got a China dual core phone which us having the MT6577 chip set
    *the Thl w1+*
    This phone ain't open source yet and I don't think it will be
    I could use the VNC way to play around with ubuntu
    And I ain't a software coder at this moment
    Can I easily get the ubuntu phone os on my phone when it's released?
    Or conical just look for companies to sell ubuntu phone?
    And something more, anyone reading this think of having a dalvik emulator embeded on a ubuntu phone, so that ones with ubuntu phone can use Android apps
    let's discuss

    Just discuss whatever you want
    re:GnuKian
    Do you have an Android device?
    If yes, is it popular and open source?
    More than that, mentioning "could be ran on android kernel" and "use same drivers of Android"
    Making me think of it would be easy to install
    lol

    This is who all this publicity is aimed at.

    What does Canonical get out of all this?

    Companies wishing to distribute an Ubuntu-branded commercial device pay a per unit service fee covering the engineering, maintenance, quality assurance, third-party licensing fees and Canonical consulting costs. Engagements are structured with some NRE, baseline volume commitments, and volume-based pricing for service fees.

    Canonical shares post-purchase services revenue from the sale of content, applications and subscriptions through its with OEM’s and distribution / channel partners.

    In other words licensing the Ubuntu trademark for commercial use.
