Hello fellow members of xda.
Today i've came across with the launching of Ubuntu Phone OS, which in my opinion will revolutionize the world of Smarth phones.
My question is, will Ubuntu Phone OS be available for Samsung Galaxy S2 ? Or will be there some compatibility issues?

Best regards,
Rui Duarte

It was just demoed and i believe that not even the sources are out, so it's hard to tell if it will run or not, but according to this an 1Ghz Cortex A9 cpu and 512mb of RAM is the minimum requeriment... so it might be possible...

It'll be released for Galaxy nexus b/w 8th to 12th January ^^

2014 is when it'll start shipping with phones as a standalone OS.

Watch "Ubuntu for phones - Industry proposition" on YouTube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpWHJDLsqTU

Watch from around ~3 when they introduce OS. It's frigging amazing, finally some innovation and competition to Android.

I've read that they will release Ubuntu full image in few days or week. Here it is;

Given that Ubuntu is open source, a full Ubuntu image that can run on a Galaxy Nexus will be available within a few days or weeks.

I'm not a big fan of Ubuntu OS, but in my opinion Android will not be overwhelmed by Ubuntu Phone. With that unity like menu on the left side it's smell like windows phone on Samsung Omnia )

Btw, I'm sure that it can be ported to our sgs2, because the first full image will be for galaxy nexus and it would be easy to port it, imo.

It isn't same as porting ROMs mate. And I don't know about details ATM, otherwise I'd have told exact answer.
