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.

Wow. This is really impressive and unsuspected! It's actually the first mobile OS that has made me interested enough to consider switching from iOS. And that's just from the first presentation.

It's also very interesting that they are practically side by side with Microsoft in this race. Sure, MS has some advantages but still.
I think this can take some serious market share away from Android.
