Ubuntu for Phones

Lest anyone be kept on pins and needles about the big announcement teaser from Ubuntu, you’ll be happy to know that Ubuntu for Phones has been announced.

First and foremost, I’m excited about this, I really am. Even though I’m a freedom-hating iPhone and Mac user (in addition to Linux of course), Ubuntu is doing something new and interesting. The use of edges and the “welcome screen” looks very cool.

I am, however, wondering a bit about the whole “reinventing the wheel” thing, instead of building off of Android. However, I do look forward to seeing what shakes out of this!

Note: the phone section of the video starts around 5:30.
