Ubuntu phone release date: on track for 2014 launch

•, Jim Martin

Ubuntu phone release date

Early in 2014 numerous reports suggested that the first Ubuntu phones had been delayed until 2015, but Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth announced at MWC that two devices would go on sale this year.

Canonical has signed agreements with Spanish handset manufacturer bq and China-based, high-end smartphone maker Meizu. These are relatively unknown brands in the UK, but both manufacturers will launch the first Ubuntu smartphones to consumers around the world.
