The people behind the upcoming Ubuntu Phone platform are still working hard to get everything ready for launch and have announced two hardware makers that are going to feature the Linux based Ubuntu OS. Unfortunately they are Chinese-based Meizu and Spain-based Bq, but I guess at least it is progress in the right direction. I guess time will tell if they are onto something or if this phone OS is only going to be for hardcore Linux fans who want to customize everything. AndroidHeadlines has the full story.
The Ubuntu phone is one of those intriguing mobile operating systems that we just don’t hear enough about. Sure, it’s not quite the powerhouse that Android and iOS are today, but given time, it could become a viable solution for those looking to have an alternate option for a smartphone, especially if they use Linux or Linux based OS’s on their computers, like Ubuntu.
