Ubuntu Phone OS Running On A Galaxy Nexus Phone

In phone terms it might has well been 10 years ago. Heck Apple went through like 3 generations of iPhones?:)

I gave my NexusOne to my daughter and now I'm using the Nexus Galaxy for all of 10 months. Doesn't really seem all that old to me.
 
I like the dock on the left and the consolidated messages. Not sure about all swiping and no buttons. The home screen could stand to be more sparse but I'm sure that can be fixed. The way he was running it made the home screen too crowded, like there's no breathing room in the OS.

Can you get rid of the purple?

Also, and I forgot the interviewer's name after his disgraceful Yota video, but he didn't ask the single most important question: app selection. What's available?

Looks better than Android though. The app icons are much better than Google's, which to me have always been too small and ugly.
 
Wow, Ubuntu always does such a great job. If only they had more support!
 
I like the idea of Ubuntu on phones, and then being able to put the phone in a dock connected to a monitor. It would be like taking your computer everywhere.

I don't think that will be a problem changing the background? I do think it looks better then Android and they are working on the API to allow running Android apps on the Ubuntu phone? Don't know how they will look or run but they say they will have a full Android API and Javac running eventually.
 
It's not "hands on."

All the reputable CES coverage of Ubuntu for smartphones has specifically stated how hands off the experience has been. Canonical will show you how well it's running on their phones, but you're not actually allowed to touch the device.

This seems to be the killer app and they are supposedly working with Intel to get it running on the new low power x86 compatible phone chips. Meaning it could eventually run the full desktop on the phone?

It just took the top spot by CNET at the Mobile World Congress over all products. Great review of the product on the site.

Maybe I can update my Lumia 800 with this one, because MS doesn't care about Windows Phone 7.X phones anymore.
