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.

I think it's a great win allowing developers to reuse at least *some* of the skills they may have picked up already.

And Qt is good with that, since Qt is familiar to many who already used it on mobile and desktop. So no effort is wasted.
