Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu

Canonical has just signed its first deal to supply a smartphone with its mobile operating system, Canonical founder and product strategy leader Mark Shuttleworth revealed in an interview here at the LeWeb conference. He wouldn't say which company has agreed to use the Linux-based OS, but said it will be offered on high-end phones in 2014.

Good news.

Well, they missed their target for funding, so they didn't proceed with that device. Maybe its the basis for whatever device they are brewing up with the unnamed partner. The partner could just be bringing ubuntu to an existing design, similar to what ZTE did with firefox phone.
