  1. After almost two years of announcing the partnership with BQ and Meizu, all we have seen so far is just one midrange smartphone. Ubuntu??? naah, i’ll stick with Blackberry 10 and android.

  2. You haven’t been paying attention – they also announced the Meizu Ubuntu phone at CES.

  3. Plus, there’s supposed to be another one for the US market coming in the summer.

  4. On Android 1GB is a death wish, having used the same on WP and now Ubuntu, it’s not remotely comparable.

    I’ve discovered this phone has English (Nigeria) as an option. Does any other OS offer the same?

  5. Actually I have, it wasn’t announced; it just got showcase just like the ZTE Nubia z9 and the Nubia z9 plus. all three devices are not available in the market yet.

  6. Canonical finally delivered real hardware, not sure about the scopes UI paradigm but it’s good that it’s here for the tech nerds. as per apps does it have ACL as rumoured?

  7. abegi. 1gb RAM on droid performs great, if it’s not a Samsung… evidenced on mtk devices e.g m2

  8. Someone did an excellent video about Scopes, need to find the link on Youtube. That was what encouraged me to buy the Ubuntu phone.

    What about the OS/UI would you like to see?
