I am a big fan of Canonical software, as a matter of fact, if it is not just for my photo editing software, I am already running on Ubuntu. Must to say that I keep a stock of the updated version of Ubuntu OS just to keep in handy, especially that I can boot from a flash drive. But putting your Android phone in a spectacular Ubuntu version makes your data very mobile.
And so, if this is going to be available soon to the public, I might consider getting one.
As explained, this is going to be a limited edition. So all those who pledged will get an hands on experience of this new innovation. From the looks of it, as listed on the specifications below, this is going to be a powerful phone. With the requirements needed to flash a desktop in a mobile device require a pretty hefty list of good hardware details to produce a mobile-desktop OS convergence.
