More devices from other 'household names' to come in 2015
Canonical, the folks behind the Ubuntu project, has announced their initial hardware partners for the Ubuntu smartphone launch. BQ of Spain and the Chinese giant Meizu have signed on, and will both be delivering products running Ubuntu in 2014.
In a live-broadcast event this morning, Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth made it clear that they wanted their initial partners to be specialists at penetrating the emerging markets. That means low-cost handsets are the goal, and while we don't know much about what BQ will be offering we do know that Meizu plans to build an Ubuntu version of the MX3 — which currently runs Android. He went on to say that both BQ and Meizu are a perfect match for Ubuntu
These are two great companies. Two Fiesty companies. Two companies that are great for Ubuntu
We have no details on availibility or pricing, or where these phones will be sold. Shuttleworth has spoken before that Canonical has excellent carrier support and backing, and that he wants Ubuntu smartphones available everywhere. We're going to catch up with Canonical at MWC, and see what else we can learn.
