    There are a lot more out here on the Internet. But to answer your question about Android and Ubuntu on the same phone. Yes. What Canonical is doing is installing a full Desktop Ubuntu OS on the phone so while you are running Android on your phone when plugged into a cradle will then boot into Ubuntu OS. That is just one aspect. Another aspect is to run Ubuntu Unity directly on the phone.
    I understand that, but I was wondering if it would be possible choose what OS boots up when you turn on your device (android or ubuntu)- similar to dual booting a pc where I can choose Windows or Linux at startup.

    Yes that would be possible as Ubuntu runs on the same kernel as Android.
    Whetever Ubuntu will use the same partition cheme as Android or not we will (and are already) able to mount those partitions from image files on the sdcard instead from the actuall partitions.
    FYI. I'm dualbooting three Android roms, all whitch have it's own /system and/data on the SD, the kernel and the cache is shared on the phone.

    Hi all,

    Do you know if Ubuntu will provide Ubuntu Phones for testing like Mozilla did for Firefox OS?

    Thanks

    You will be able to download it onto a Galaxy Nexus during the end of February:

    If you are really interested on putting Ubuntu on an Android phone do some reading on XDAdevelopers forum. When Android ICS came out, before JB, I installed it on a mini sdcard and booted my Nook into it. There are all kinds of tricks you can do with Linux because the kernel is the same for the Android.

    Re: Ubuntu phone OS

    I wonder why Canonical didn't switch to the Nexus 4 when it was released so that they are working on a phone that at least meets their own minimum requirements to run in desktop mode. Why release an image for a phone that doesn't even meet their requirements to use it? Anyway, hope somebody creates an image for the Nexus 4 soon after the code is released.

    To be able to do this you need a phone as well as the dock to go with it. AFAIK there isn't a high-end phone with this specific requirement yet.

    So just curious, but does anyone close to ubuntu phone OS know if their implementing it in such a way that people wouldn't void their warranty on their current android device?
