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 hope this is the beginning of a trend.

I like what they're doing with the phone interface, and love the idea of the full desktop UI when docked. I'm not a fan of simplified desktop interfaces (like Ubuntu), but I hope other distributions do something similar.

Now I just hope it gets hacked into custom ROMs!
