    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?

    Default Hype

    I expect much hype, and nothing to deliver.

    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.

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