Phoronix: Ubuntu Linux For Mobile Phones Announced
Canonical officially announced Ubuntu Phone OS today, it's attempt at pushing the popular desktop Linux distribution onto mobile devices. However, for the moment, if you're just an end-user don't get too excited...
Watch OUT! Here comes Nerd Rage and Anti-Ubuntu posts!
Here, let me start! "Arch could do that better!".
Am I doing it right?
Was there an ETA on the sale of the phone. Can't find it anywhere.
I'm still waiting for Ubuntu TV.
No, it didn't mention ANY provider that will be picking up the phone as of this date. Nor do I think it mentioned that it turns into the FULL ubuntu desktop when docked to a hdmi capable tv and usb keyboard mouse combo. I found that detail on the ubuntu blog.

Plasma Active looks like a better idea than this actually... Still nice, it would be good if they maintained compatibility with Plasma...
No hardware vendor support..hmm
Okay, it has only become 2013 and we're getting hyped up for false hopes?
Ubuntu TV for 2012 (didn't happen...)
Ubuntu for Android 2012 (died off?)
Ubuntu Phone 2013 (No vendor support, but hey we got the OS! -.-)
I'm sorry to rant but I've lost hope for Canonical. They are good at getting peoples hopes up, but actually delivering rarely happens. I wouldn't announce any type of gadget until you GOT A HARDWARE VENDOR...:/
What graphics server is it running? Wayland? X.org? Something else?
