It's not "available today". It's not going to be. BQ itself has said it never communicated that it would be today. Your news is a lie.
sourav , 09 Feb 2015Will it run all apps which are available on Linux (PC version) ??think if even then aps from arm arch
Linux has been in cellphones for a long time, like Meego and Android
ubuntu nearby.... i dont think ubuntu will succeed in mobile OS, better at PC. and the unity launcher was a bad experience.
good luck btw.
Zahid, 09 Feb 2015Welcome Ubuntu, Finally Linux in cell phone. It will be good expirence.actually looking at videos and screens its look more like typical touchscreen OS, with few addons here and there.
As I mentioned in my comment below, first idea of normal linux OS was amazing, but now we have another meego/firefoxOS system mix :/
why they put old chipset on this phone. this chipset got bug with gps they need latest chipset from mediatek that has been fixed
Welcome Ubuntu, Finally Linux in cell phone. It will be good expirence.
Everything must start at some point, even a tiny step forward, SO Welcome Ubuntu

neb, 09 Feb 2015King of the bezels :)( Just... stop this bezel bullsh*t. Most of people don't give rat's ass. 3 years ago you didn't. I hate hipsters.
this phone is gonna be big flop:
1. first project mentioned all-in-one phone that would replace pc and phone(just plug external screen and mouse/keyboard)
2. Then we have idea of "power" phone that would bring normalOS to mobile world
3. Now we have mid end phone with "we have no idea what is this" OS with not so great functions a bit outdated spec(but I can live with that) and design that looks like Chinese knockoff.
I need to say that first concept was just perfect. phone as a only one device that you need, just plug monitor and you have pc... and now? we have another firefoxOS that gonna die really soon...
listed as android 4.4???
