What are everyone's thoughts on the new announcement of the Ubuntu Phone? There's been a lot of buzz here on dA with people making designs and posting interesting mock-ups. But is this something you could see yourself using in conjunction with your Ubuntu desktop/laptop?

in case you've not seen it, check out the video here: www.ubuntu.com/devices/phone

Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

I'm not a big fan of Ubuntu but Linux on Arm is interesting.

I actually don't think I will use it......ever, canonical continues to disappoint me so does Mr. Shuttleworth. been using Ubuntu since 2004 may 1st yeah that's the exact date I installed ubuntu for the first time, and installed over a completely good Sarge install.

Can't name all the reasons, but it's not few. so no ubuntu on my Gal :-)

I notice there's a bit of lag, but once that's solved, I might buy a Nexus to run it on alongside my iPhone. I doubt I could actually use it full time though as I'm far too Apple-centric.

Good look getting away from Apple, it's like Silent Hill. So I hear ;-)

I could leave them if I wanted. They just design so much better than other companies and their products have been around so long that it's just easier to go to them first.

Ah, easier. Your freedom is what we fight for, but you don't have to take it or even value it. But Free Software will still be here, defending a patch of safety where you can come if ever your relationship with Apple becomes unbearably abusive. ;-)

btw, Free and Open Source isn't a company. It's a social movement to defend your rights as a user of technology. Some people get confused about that.

I actually know lots of people who want to leave Microsoft and Apple, and can't. I don't really understand people who find no fault with Apple, but I certainly understand people who are trapped on those platforms.

I'll have to disagree with you about the better design, it's average design by Ubuntu standards these days. Apple just aren't leading design any more.

I don't think anyone leads design anymore. Everything is at a point it was at about 10 years ago: the companies have matched each other. Hardware design is what I mean by better design, although I consider iOS to be more put together than Android and Windows Phone just looks cheap (and apparently it's so cheap that WP8 doesn't have a notification center). I'm hoping that Apple will gain it's bearings back in Software design since Jony Ive now heads software development in Cupertino.
