    i dont see any future on Ubuntu phone….

  4. Benjamin Martin says:

    Does anyone in the USA have 4g on a bq 4.5? Thanks

  5. Joe Enocsson says:

    Am i wrong or is there no proper "home" or "desktop" on this OS?

  6. Chris Olivares says:

    Horrible design. First impression of that phone, cheap and clunky. Not much effort on the aesthetics to say the least.

    Thumbs down.

  7. Oscar Ruben Pineda Cordova says:

    Can we use this out of Europe? Can I use that in Mexico?

  8. Artur As says:

    +Jordan Keyes just don't understand why they didn't use a phone with higher specs, or this is only preview version and the software still needs optimizing? By the way you mentioned 'Le Meridien' hotel, if I'm correct it is a 5 star hotel, did they paid for your stay? By the way Ubuntu OS looks so smooth when scrolling on that device keeping in mind that it's not high-end phone.

  9. Eduard Voicu says:

    How many packages in the repos? Can you compile from source your own distro?
    Oh, and another thing : packages provides binaries for the cpu or for some framework? Are they compiled, or it uses jit? Thanks.

    60 fps…again

  11. Fin H says:

    Mini nit pick. Why at a London launch would they gave you a non British plug. That seems random.

  12. ThalassTKynn says:

    I'm still hopeful for a ubuntu touch/phone/whatevs rom for my various (samsung) devices. But they're older so I'm not holding my breath.

  13. Luanstar says:

    how much is this phone??

  14. Henry Sazo says:

    Es un buen cel y espero que este año eeste en guatemala

  15. Cool Cookie says:

    That's very nice but just out of curiosity who's funding all this? Don't tell me it's all from donations.

    Thanks for making this video. I have ordered one, my friend in the netherlands got it for me, I can't to get it and get some videos up on my youtube channel. I wondered how many other US people got the very first ubuntu phone.
