Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu

Canonical today announces it has signed agreements with mobile device manufacturers bq (Spain) and Meizu (China) to bring Ubuntu smartphones to consumers globally. Canonical is working with these partners to ship the first Ubuntu devices on the latest hardware in 2014. Ubuntu has also received significant support from the world's biggest carriers, some of which intend to work with OEM partners to bring phones to market this year.

Good news for Canonical.

Buy a Ubuntu phone and realize I have no useful apps for it? Run Android apps on it? No thanks, I'd rather buy another Android phone.

That's a great way of thinking. If everybody thought like that, we'd still be running DOS.

It has a pretty good suduku app.

I mean that seriously it is the greatest suduku app I've ever seen, and as a joke as to the breadth of content that is there.
