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'm not opposed to hardware manufacturers introducing something unique, but lets be frank, none of the tablets from the ipad to surface to androids have anything that's all that different from the others...they truly are putting their own software polish on top of a mostly generic hardware design. There's nothing wrong with this, but there's no engineering reason any of these have to be bundled either.
