The last time I reviewed the Canonical Ubuntu-powered smartphone a few weeks ago when it was confirmed that the devices use the four corners of the screen to provide a more immersive experience.However, he had no clear idea when when we would see the Ubuntu power smartphones hit the market. Fortunately, CEO of Canonical, Mark Shuttleworth, has outlined a short launch window for phones.According to Shuttleworth, smartphones with the Ubuntu operating system will begin shipping to customers in October 2013. Meanwhile, Canonical representatives note that developers can access the operating system to start developing applications and other software as soon as this February. The first version of the operating system provides developers will be optimized to run on the Galaxy Nexus smartphone manufactured by Samsung.
Shuttlesworth also notes that users will be able to run other operating systems on your computer, including Windows, iOS and Android.Of course, the success of Ubuntu-powered smartphones is far from guaranteed. While the operating system is very popular among open source developers, the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movement in the world of business means that employees will choose their own phones, so it is most likely an iPhone or Apps for your business and personal needs.Shuttlesworth also noted that the Ubuntu operating system will be available in two major geographic markets in October. North America was not specifically named as one of those markets, but the company has confirmed to the States as a key market for Ubuntu.
