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.

The next lineup of superphones with A15 cores and Kepler(-like) GPUs and 2 GB of RAM is all 95% of people need to get all their computing done. If you can connect those easily to tablets, monitors, TVs etc it will one device/OS for everything.

By 2014 those specs will be quite cheap. I see no performance problems for Ubuntu.
