Ubuntu For Smartphones (not Ubuntu for Android)

If I’m understanding this correctly …

This isn’t Ubuntu for Android (ie. Ubuntu running on or alongside Android), it’s Ubuntu running as a REPLACEMENT for Android on your Android smartphone:-

BBC News article here:-

Part of me is saying “that sounds great”, but quite a large part is saying “but it’s Ubuntu, so it’s probably not going to do exactly what it says on the tin” … and after my historical experience with Unity (!) I have to wonder who’s implemented the UI … (?)

Exactly :slight_smile:
