So for those of you who haven’t seen yet, Ubuntu is trying to build an incredible phone using crowdsourcing.
I figured some people here would be interested in putting down the $695 to (potentially) get what will be a massive driving force in phone innovation. If they don’t raise enough money to produce it then you will be completely refunded.
I am a HUGE Ubuntu fan, but I just bought an HTC one a couple of weeks ago. If the Ubuntu phone ever comes about I would definitely buy one. While I prefer Mac computers I have several PC’s and every one of them is dual bootable for Ubuntu which is what they run most of the time.
I don’t find the hardware cumbersome, and it has served me much better than HP, Dell, Compaq, or even Toshiba. The only reason I prefer OSX over Linux is the software availability. I am using a Compaq notebook with Ubuntu right now, but I have a dual processor Mac desktop at home for most of my digital editing work. Linux will continue to gain ground, and someday be a front runner. I stated a few years back that Android would someday be good enough to lure me away from IOS, and the HTC One with Jellybean was just the device to do that. My trial efforts at liking Gingerbread were failures.
