The first Ubuntu Phone

Eagerly awaiting more details to emerge on the first Ubuntu phone - BQ Aquaris E4.5. Especially on the software and how Canonical has managed to build the GUI stack and multimedia playback. Given that the Linux support is not something to cheer about when it comes to graphics drivers and video decoding, the fact that there's now a real consumer device is something interesting and awaiting some real reviews on the device. There has been quite a bit of discussions on the Mir Display Server and libhybris - Waiting to see how these have shaped up for the phone.
