Ubuntu Phone Featuring Slick Linus Tech Tips CES 2013 - YouTube


I've always wanted a "free" phone where I control what apps run on it. Specifically I do not appreciate the privacy flaws of both apple and android phones.

This, to me, is the ultimate in phone.

I really like the look of the ubuntu mobile phone. I will definitely consider getting one when they become available. I like how they use all 4 edges of the screen.

It could very well be the best phone, yes.

Looks good. Could be my next phone.

EULA agreement quote

"As you can see from the image above, app companies now demand the right to;
- “Record Audio” – “Allows the app to record audio with the microphone. This permission allows the app to record audio at any time without your confirmation.”
- “Take pictures and videos” – “Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This permission allows the app to use the camera at any time without your confirmation.”"

Wake up to the freedom phone.

ubuntu has been, by far, the worst desktop experience of my life; and I've been using linux since around 1998. it's not going anywhere near my mobile devices.
