    Phoronix: An Ubuntu Phone/Mobile Announcement Is Coming Next Week

    It looks like on Wednesday will be Canonical's first big Ubuntu Phone/Mobile announcement since the failed Ubuntu Edge crowd-funding campaign...

    I hope a nice slider phone with a terminal friendly keyboard is part of the announcement.

      Ultimately it would be the announcement of a 64bit Tegra K1 based phone, but could we expect Canoncial to pull something like that off?

        Hype

        I expect much hype, and nothing to deliver.

          I expect a mediocre phone.

            well, they'll probably at least deliver requirement to sign CLA when trying to dial phone if nothing else.

              nah, I expect they will have to deliver something since Mozilla, Sailfish and tizen have already a head start.

                I really hope you're wrong on that, because it is getting a bit redundant after a while.

                  I liked the idea that a phone can be used as a desktop.
                  I think with a Intel Baytrail your can make that happen.
                  If the bios don't hold us back like the Asus T100.

                      after the ubuntu edge fiasco I doubt anyone still takes them seriously...

                        If they can pull off a phone that can also be used as a desktop it might become the first smart phone I ever bought.

                        In general I would prefer to have both a desktop for real work and a tiny 5 gram phone that doesn't do anything else than phone calls.
                        Since that still doesn't exist, this might be a good alternative.

                          It wouldn't surprise me if they announced some hardware that was, as you suggest, crippled by nvidia crap.

                            i'm waiting the same. except, i think tizen will be the way to go for various reasons. it runs standard linux components and it is backed by companies which actually want to have community

                              I agree with the Tegra K1 hunch. It is likely, and Nvidia would give the chips half-free at this point.
