Hi, I want to know the new ubuntu platform for smartphones. I want to know how can I acquire a good smartphone with this OS in Colombia, or is it possible to install Ubuntu to my current smartphone, how could I do that? thank you so much.
At the end of this site
it says that you can register to be informed when the first phone will be release. I guess that means that at the moment you can't buy a smartphone with Ubuntu on it.
I certainly hope so. Ubuntu is far behind Windows/Android/Apple in terms of popularity but there's no guarantee that will still be true a few years from now. Right now I don't want an Ubuntu-only phone but I am pleased to have Ubuntu installed alongside Android on my Nexus phone-puter. I can install just about anything from the Ubuntu repo's that I want.
Want two extra gigs of hard drive space?
Support running Ubuntu from a compressed file!
I like the direction Canonical is heading. It definitely will help Ubuntu get more exposure.
I think Ubuntu will be very popular OS when it will be available for phones, because its not the same as Android or IOS, it's a 'full' OS. As a proof here is the forum on XDA-developers with anomal activity which was created only a month ago: http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=2069
I am not a Linux user, but now looking for phone suitable for Ubuntu, which can have image of this OS available from XDA geeks. I hope image will be easy to port to many devices.
