After years of teases, promises and demos, Canonical has locked up the first two manufacturers of Ubuntu phones. Meizu and BQ Readers will be releasing handsets with the Linux-based OS installed on them sometime in 2014.
Details about release date, price and specs are still to be determined, but we were told to expect more info at Mobile World Congress.
The list of supporting carriers also remains a mystery, but at least we know that there will be consumer-ready Ubuntu phones on the market before the end of the year. Mark Shuttleworth,
