All Ubuntu Phones Are Now Sold Out, New Flash Sale at 3PM CET

Gadgets

Amazing, simply amazing! We have no idea how many Ubuntu phone units were sold today, but after only three hours all available BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition smartphones were sold out. Looks like the Ubuntu community in Europe is really strong, as they also had to face some server issues with BQ’s online store, which apparently was not prepared for a large crowd.

How fast is the BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition phone?

Ubuntu

Videos of the first Ubuntu-based phone to be released in the UK show that the low-budget handset may struggle in terms of performance. The BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition will be released this week, and marks the end of a two-year journey for Ubuntu to find a manufacturer willing to ship its smartphone OS.

The handset's specification is hardly stellar. It has a 4.5in 960 x 540 resolution screen, a quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek Cortex-A7 processor, 1GB of RAM and only 8GB of onboard storage, with the option to bolster that via the memory card slot.

UBUNTU PHONE REVIEW (BQ AQUARIS E4.5 UBUNTU EDITION): GREAT OS, AVERAGE HARDWARE

Filed under
Reviews
Ubuntu

After years of development, the first Ubuntu phone is finally here (Europe only) and while the hardware is average at best, the OS is a breath of fresh air, bringing innovations like scopes and "magic edges", designed not just to be different, but in many ways, better than the current trends.

What the Ubuntu phone could mean for open source

Filed under
OSS
Ubuntu

Despite all the unhappy snowflakes that have flung their poo in the general direction of Canonical, and all the Phoronix headlines that have thrown fuel on the fire, I respect Canonical and the community for their willingness to be different and try something new.

Much as I admire the work of Mozilla and Jolla on their respective phone platforms, they are largely doing what we already have today, just in a slightly different way (and in the case of FirefoxOS, to target important new markets). Canonical, though, is doing something genuinely different: scopes are a new model, the application developer model is new, and the feel of Ubuntu on phones even feels new.

With it, they are stirring the pot in a heavily entrenched market and having the confidence to propose something new, something that fits into a bigger convergence story, and something that is entirely free and open source.

Is it a risky play? Sure it is. All of the eggs are being put into the convergence basket, but if they pull this off, it could open up a whole new exciting era, not just for Ubuntu, but for open source too.

Ubuntu phone

THE first Ubuntu smart phone goes on sale in Europe in the next few days, but early reports suggest that very few people outside the continent will get to see or buy one any time soon. This is a bit of a disappointment for dyed-in-the-wool Ubuntu users who have waited eagerly to see how well their operating system of choice runs on a mobile device.

Unity 8 is coming to the Ubuntu desktop and it's bringing with it the Mir display server, Qt implementation, and a host of other core modifications. That doesn't mean that traditional GTK+ apps won't work anymore and there is proof of that.

​No reboot patching comes to Linux 4.0

One reason to love Linux on your servers or in your data-center is that you so seldom needed to reboot it. True, critical patches require a reboot, but you could go months without rebooting. Now, with the latest changes to the Linux kernel you may be able to go years between reboots. Read more

Linux 4.0-rc2

So rc2 missed the usual Sunday afternoon timing, because I spent most of the weekend debugging an issue that happened on an old Mac Mini I have around, and I hate making even early -rc releases with problems on machines that I have direct access to. Even if it only affected old machines that actual developers are unlikely to have or at least use. Today I got the patch from Daniel Vetter to fix it, so instead of doing a Sunday evening rc2, it's a Tuesday morning one. Go get it. It works better for the delay. Other than that little one-liner i915 fix? Not much, actually. It's been a very quiet week, for being this early in the release process. Sure, 3.19-rc2 was even smaller, so it continues a trend, but that was the xmas week. I hope this low volume is just because the 4.0 merge window itself was somewhat calmer than most recent releases. But I suspect the real reason is that the driver and networking trees from GregKH and davem are pending, and didn't make rc2. We'll see. Anyway, the shortlog is appended, and testing is appreciated, Linus Read more
