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 don't own any smartphones and haven't much cared for them, but with OSX, Win7, Ubuntu in my house, I can see an opportunity now to get a smartphone that runs Ubuntu. I am quite intrigued by this.

Time to take a look at the dev kit.
