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.

Wayland?

On phoronix forums they say it is running x.org.


So not Wayland? Obviously x.org gets the best appcompat, but all apps would need to be at least recompiled for ARM, and smooth graphics seems like a higher priority than network transparency in a phone.

I'd be curious/appreciative if anyone has any more information on this.
