  • Multiple opportunities and freedom to manufacturers and mobile carriers

“The launch of the first Ubuntu smartphones is a significant milestone,” Canonical CEO Jane Silber said in a statement.

The Specification of the Ubuntu’s first smartphone is quite acceptable with respect to its price. The phone is powered by a Quad-core 1.3Ghz Cortex A7 processor running up to 1.3 GHz with 4.5 inch screen, 8 megapixel rear camera and dual sim.
