    I don't think we'll see anything revolutionary, bq (I've just looked at their products) sells low/mid end smartphones, I found their fastest phone listed in futuremark mobile and is definitely not in the high end segment (http://www.futuremark.com/hardware/m...ris+5.7/review).
    I guess pricing will be what is listed on bq webpage already (they sell Android phones now) since I understand they are just going to install Ubuntu on their current phones (?Ubuntu?s ongoing success on PCs, as well as the huge support it has gained for its mobile proposition provides the best opportunity to bring an alternative platform to market on our hardware,? Alberto Mendez, CEO)

    It's BQReaders (http://www.bqreaders.com/gb/), based in Spain making the handset and not BQMobile, which is based in India/China.

    I was wondering that, too. Low cost electronics OEM based in Europe doesn't sound feasible. The hardware would be way to expensive.

    2006

    The journey of BQ mobiles started in 2006 when Mr. Tao Yin– the founder and CEO of the company founded a R&D center in Shenzhen and started providing PCBA to integrators, brands, operators around the world.

    People are working on a slider keyboard Other Half for Jolla.

    With Bay Trail, I've been hoping for the comeback of slider UMPCs like the OQO (below) and install Linux on it when things work better on it.


    An Ubuntu phone/UMPC may be good enough. Although, I'd still like a mouse pointer. I wonder how high end these phones will be and maybe include a Wacom digitizer and stowable stylus.

    BQS37

    The BQS37 looks like the Android on Nokia hardware phone that everyone has been wanting.
