We expect to see the first Ubuntu OS-powered smartphone unveiled later in the year and in the meantime, Canonical is demoing its upcoming platform on a couple of Nexus devices, Nexus 4 and Nexus 10.
That could change soon as we think we may’ve caught the first “real” Ubuntu smartphone called Edge. Details are scarce at the moment but we tend to think this isn’t a device made by one of Ubuntu’s partners but rather a reference design handset compiled by Ubuntu’s engineers. Heck the image we’ve got looks like a mockup and I guess we’ll have to wait for few more weeks (hopefully not months) to get all the details.
One thing is clear – Ubuntu could change the industry big time, providing real convergence out of box with many apps running across multiple form factors, including phones, tablets and even computers. Can’t wait to try it out.
