One of the more interesting conversations Tim Lord had at CES
this year was with Ubuntu Community Manager Jono Bacon
, who was showing off the Ubuntu Phone
that is supposed to be released later this year. According to the Ubuntu website, it "delivers a magical phone that is faster to run, faster to use and fits perfectly into the Ubuntu family." Big words, but if Ubuntu parent Canonical can live up to them, the mobile phone market may soon have an interesting new operating system competitor to shake things up.
