I keeping hearing about this Ubuntu phone OS, I even watched a video. I can't find a place to download it though. Is it still in the works? I'm a little confused.
Ubuntu Phone is still in the work, and an image for installation on a Nexus will be available in February.
A real device though, won't be shipped until 2014.
If you go to the Ubuntu.com home page and look at the bottom of the page you will see a heading called 'Devices.' There you can select 'Ubuntu for phones' and 'Ubuntu for Android.'
Read all about it there and you will notice that what you are hearing about Ubuntu phones is primarily an invitation to Original Equipment Makers (OEMs) to develop and market mobile devices with a Ubuntu OS pre-installed.
It is an attempt to bring about an alternate method of distributing Ubuntu other than the traditional download method.
Sometimes there is also a secondary invitation for users of certain existing devices to become testers.
That's about it, really.
It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.

I look so forward to booting up my phone with Ubuntu!
Even though I've watched pretty much every video on Ubuntu Phone and I also know that the source won't be released until february, I still keep on searching for new information.
As soon as I can somehow install this on my current Android phone I'll be the first to do/try so!
XDA forum type in your device and then do a search to see if you can root and install Ubuntu on your phone.
