HypnoZ® - Ubuntu smartphone will be available in october this year. - RaGEZONE Forums


The first Ubuntu-powered mobile phones will be reportedly be available from October this year.
Reporting on a meeting Shuttleworth attended in New York earlier this week, Michael Hickins of the Wall Street Journal writes that the Ubuntu founder announced plans for the Phone to ship in ‘two large geographic markets’ come October of this year.

October is a lot nearer than the ‘early 2014′ date previously proffered by Canonical – a date that many critics deemed to be ‘too late’ if the OS wishes to gain traction against rivals.

Mozilla will launch the first handset running their web-friendly Firefox OS in South America later this year. Other handset manufacturers, including ZTE, and over 7 major national network carriers have also announced plans to ship devices running it.

Although Shuttleworth is not reported as confirming either of the two territories targeted, he is on record as having stressed that North America is ‘a key market for Ubuntu’.

October aside, details on specifics are scant. Mark ‘declined’ to name any handset partners or network carriers.

Late February/March will see the Ubuntu Phone source code made available to developers, alongside an installable image for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus handset.

This might just be the opensource project we need. Because lets face it, while Android is opensource, what we really know as Android is really Google Android, which all the sudden isn't that open anymore by the time you have it in your hands, also because of Google, some people stay away from it.

A truly open platform that's not dictated by a massive corporation, could get a lot of support.

I remember Sean showing me this at some point last year. It's on the official Ubuntu website, if you look.
Looking forward to it, tbh.

Pics or didn't happen. I dont believe in online news sites. Some leaks or pics would change my mind though.



Not many people got experience with Ubuntu.
It was shown at CES...

Mmmm... not sure if I want to bother with this now.



Nexus 4
In rare circumstances, the Nexus4 may get into a state where it may not boot at all after the battery is drained ( even into recovery ). If this happens, the only way to restore it is to disassemble the back of the phone and unplug/plug the battery connector.
