Re: Ubuntu Phone looks exciting if it gains traction
In the presentation they say that they are working on making it work on hardware that currently runs Android by using the Android drivers so hopefully we'll be able to install ubuntu for phones on an existing android phone.
At least with being completely opensource it shouldn't have the continuous phone home leaks that the other 3 main mobile OSs do. Obviously when you use services from Google or MS then data is going to be passed but a lot can be done to keep to a minimum. Any bloatware an operator installs can easily be removed.
This at least this gives us much more control over our privacy than we can currently get with the other mobile OSs currently available. I hope this develops well. It all depends on the model they choose to monetise this.
