Canonical unveiled its Ubuntu Touch OS in October but has made little progress since the company doesn’t have a hardware partner. But that’s about to change! According to Canonical’s CEO Mark Shuttleworth they have concluded their first set of agreements to ship Ubuntu Touch on mobile phones!
He also revealed that Ubuntu Touch will be available in higher-end handsets and they will be coming in 2014.
However, Shuttleworth is keeping their hardware partner’s name a secret. He did mention that Canonical is also in talks with other “four household brands” that sell lots of phones all over the world both in emerging and fully emerging markets.
