Red face Ubuntu Phone OS - Let's Find it and Port It!

Alright guys here is the video shown on the Galaxy Nexus in case you have been living under a rock for the past few days...


Everywhere I look I cannot find anywhere where it has been released to begin working on getting it to our Note 2. Let us update this thread and eventually turn it into a "How-To" once we slap together something that works.

Any thoughts to get the ball rolling?

They said they will be releasing a flashable zip for the galaxy nexus sometime in the future. So I would think you would have to wait til that.

Yeah I figured that this is all that we can do is wait, but does anyone know where it will be dropped first?

I think its kind of like a mash up of wp and android. To me I don't know if I like it yet I don't think, it looks like everything big and they didn't utilize the realist ate they have. And that looked a little slow, if you watch on some of the transactions and I like the ability to have buttons and menus. I'll have to play with it when its out but so far I'm not sure

Default excited to see what they bring to the table

android may not be as stagnant as iOS, but it's going to be neat having an ubuntu OS. I run it on my windows machine as another boot option and find it useful and fairly intuitive.
will be looking forward to news for this.

I think the ability to have a full fledged operating system on a phone is an amazing idea.
What those videos where showing was a Nexus running a Ubuntu operating system, with some sort of mobile theme applied. Once the device is docked it could be used as a desktop solution. Or plugged into a TV, or a laptop etc.
This is something the mobile market has never seen before.

I have a big concern about Ubuntu's history of ignoring feedback over the last few years. They've been making very heavy handed design decisions with the excuse that Linux users are 'free' to change things around if they want, but that attitude won't cut it in the consumer mobile market.
