Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu

Canonical today announces it has signed agreements with mobile device manufacturers bq (Spain) and Meizu (China) to bring Ubuntu smartphones to consumers globally. Canonical is working with these partners to ship the first Ubuntu devices on the latest hardware in 2014. Ubuntu has also received significant support from the world's biggest carriers, some of which intend to work with OEM partners to bring phones to market this year.

Good news for Canonical.

I really like ubuntu overall and I think if they could make those ginormous hard drives reality they'd have a real advantage. Obviously this isn't the prototype and those specs don't matter anymore but, yeah still interested.
"Ubuntu puts content and services at the centre of the experience, rather than hiding them behind stores and apps."
This sentence is gibberish to me.
