Ubuntu Lands It’s First Smartphone Deal, Will Come To High-End Devices In 2014


Today, we bring great news for ubuntu fans like me as Canonical’s CEO Mark Shuttleworth has just stated in his interview with CNet that the company has just signed its first Ubuntu handset deal where the ubuntu would ship along with high-end smartphones sometime in 2014. While Shuttleworth didn’t named the smartphone manufacturer, he added that Canonical is negotiating phone deals with four “household brands.”

It’s too soon to say whether or not Ubuntu will get enough support to compete against other mobile platforms, but given the positive feedbacks it received with it’s developer previews, we can expect ubuntu powered smartphones to be an instant success especially to current Android users wanting to try an alternative that’s not too different from Android OS.
