    yes a smartphone is required.

    The post you responded too was asking if it could be installed onto a Samsung A707, they said they didnt have Internet and you said you thought all smartphones had wifi, the poster doesnt have a smartphone

    Re: Ubuntu phone OS

    Oooooo.... Terminal access to the phone? SSH into your phone?

    Anyway, one benefit to an Ubuntu phone coming out now is that they can learn from the experiences with Apple, Android and other phone systems on what works, what doesn't and what people want their phone to do.

    So there is a benefit to "coming to the party late", and Ubuntu has a real chance of taking advantage of these lessons and start off with the right foot.

    Re: Ubuntu phone OS

    i wonder if any iProducts would be able to be rooted and then install Ubuntu phone OS on them. That would be awesome. LOL

    Most likely not I can dream

    Re: Ubuntu phone OS

    A new interesting video I discovered today:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=EQOtVi6alSQ

    The reporter is allowed to touch the phone herself, I haven't seen that in any other video. They comment on how "snappy" the experience is and Mark says that "we can bring this up on any android phone in a matter of weeks".

    Edit: A new video on a performance improvement made a couple of days ago: http://vimeo.com/56944191

    I want to see the phone when it is docked to a monitor and to a TV!

    I do wish the reporters would pronounce Ubuntu correctly, though.

    It makes a lot of sense, I was thinking wishfully, but color me disappointed.
