Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This could potentially be quite big for Ubuntu and Linux in general. Canonical and the Chinese government have announced a collaboration to build a version of Ubuntu specifically for the Chinese market, which will become the reference architecture for standard operating systems in the country.

Not. The news explicit names desktop and desktop only. If some chinese manufactors will offer Ubuntu Phone devices earliest in 2014 is still open. There is lots of opensource Android competition including Firefox, Sailfish, Tizen. Later even from an asian global player.

Errr... did you read it all the way to the end?

“With Ubuntu Kylin, China now has its own secure and stable desktop operating system, produced alongside Ubuntu's global community. Ubuntu combines proven technology with a mature ecosystem and strong OEM and ISV partners, and this initiative allows the Joint Lab to bring those strengths to China across the full range of platforms: desktop, server, cloud, tablet and phone.”
