Ubuntu phone: Opensource smartphones and tablets
You hear all the time and everywhere about about opensource and openhardware. You know or don't know too much about it but hear that it spreads like flour. That's true because the Android Operating system comes from the Linux kernel. Linux which is a free and opensource operating system used by a huge community on laptops and computers, drones, IOT, routers, The cloud, robots, etc.
Like it was not enough, the Ubuntu community spreads to the mobile devices as Smartphone and tablet. That's good news and a new beginning for people that want to control their data and develop on their operating system and application specially when you have some brands like Apple closing all their systems and Google android whom some layers are unreachable for developpers.
To arrive at that result, some smartphones and tablets manufacturers associated themselves with the Ubuntu community. You can now find some brand like: BQ, Meizu and some others coming for the hardware part..
