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.

Motorola and Asus are failing because the integration of a desktop OS (and the mangement of a seamless transition) is a software problem, and software is Google's job while Motorola and Asus are hardware compagnies. Motorola moreover overpriced the dock for the Atrix.

True, I wonder how high of a priority it is for Google. I doubt OEMs want to get beat out by someone like Microsoft (who's moving at a snails pace in terms of aligning their platforms anyway).

I think Apple currently does the best job here, even if primitive, on iCloud. Their commercials also effectively show it off.
