If you love Ubuntu then you might know about Ubuntu Edge which campaign never reach to the goal in 2013. I was quite thrilled to get that Ubuntu edge phone but end up with Nexus 4, so I could run latest Ubuntu Touch development. Canonical is partnered with Meizu a long ago and they are about to launch a new mobile "Meizu PRO 5" Ubuntu Edition. It will be the most powerful and rich-feature Ubuntu smartphone, I will take about specs in a bit. As you know Ubuntu recently announced it's first tablet which is made by Spanish company BQ.
Ubuntu OS on the desktop is very famous brand and has a long heritage in the open source community, but rather than confine itself to the one platform, Canonical set out on the path to use the same core kernel and deliver the same platform across smartphones, tablets, the desktop and TVs.
Ubuntu Touch is a mobile version of the Ubuntu operating system which is being developed by Canonical Ltd and Ubuntu Community. It is designed primarily for touchscreen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. Ubuntu Touch is designed specifically for smartphones to power everything from entry-level handhelds to "high-end super-phones" that double as PCs. The OS is fairly cool, though. You swipe on the edges of the phone to bring up the app launcher, visit your home screen, multitask, and view menus instead of hardware buttons. The home screen is a bit different than what you see on iOS and Android, showing your open apps along the top and your shortcuts on the bottom. Lock screen features include: Missed calls and messages notifications, info-graphic animations, swipe left/right to unlock, lock screen security (Pin/Password), music control, date, time and alarm information.
