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.

They can. After all, Google can stop collaborating anytime they want (save for the business deal they made) with any OEM. I do not know if that counts as a "sanction": Acer could have continued what they were doing, they would just have to do stuff on their own with Alibaba (and Android AOSP code). Their call.

That's really bad, it is a way to stop innovation.
