This forum seems to be filling up quickly on some oversights, stupidity, and bizarreness.

'Ubuntu for Phones' is separate from 'Ubuntu for Android' (which is still being developed) .

There are no ETAs on ports. Check your device's specific development forum for port information. Be patient, do not make threads asking for ETAs.

Image has been released for the following devices:
Galaxy Nexus - maguro
Nexus 4 - mako
Nexus 7 - grouper
Nexus 10 - manta
How to install from Ubuntu | How to install from Windows

Ports:


Requirements:
Quote:

Entry-level Ubuntu phones will require a 1Ghz Cortex A9 processor and between 512MB and 1GB of memory, while the high-end superphones that double as PCs will require a quad-core A9 or Intel Atom processor and at least 1GB RAM.

Note: These specs were found under the operators and OEMs section of canonicals website and may not reflect the requirements for installation on a android phone

Compared to the specs for the galaxy nexus:
1.2 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9
1 GB memory

App store:
Ubuntu for phones will not launch with an app store (but will be released after launch) nor will it include an android app compatibility layer from canonical.

Terminal:
Will contain a terminal with perhaps an optimised keyboard for the terminal.

As always, be sure to check out the wiki for additional information.

Totally agree with OP. This forum is so full of inaccuracies it's becoming quite a comical read.

It desperately needs moderating.

Hopefully once the images for the gnexus are released we will get some active defenses from the storm of ignorance we seem to be currently experiencing...
