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.

android's java apps are running everywhere. Do I have to provide binaries for every supported platform when I write apps in QML?

That is no problem when you follow the App Store model. You compile for whatever test devices you want. Then you upload your code to the Ubuntu store, and they compile it for all the appropriate targets.

If you want to control app distribution you're pretty much fucked, yeah.
