Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Expected, but still insanely cool: Canonical has just announced Ubuntu for phones. This is a new mobile phone operating system, with its own user interface and development platform. It's built around Qt5 and QML, and the interface reminds me of MeeGo on the N9. It's supposed to be on the shelves in early 2014, but the developer preview is out today.

Ubuntu for phones uses Android as its base, but beyond that, is completely new. It has its own interface

I got a question I hope some one here can answer, if Ubuntu is based on Android, can Google sanctioned any OEM like it tried to do with Acer in the case it supports the Ubuntu phone?
