    How about a new non-android device forum-- one devoted to ubuntu on phone/tablet/tvstick? I've got a feeling that Ubuntu's totally open codebase coupled with enthusiastic users & devs is going to be rather transformative in the next 8 months. So far I've put it on my Nexus 4 & 7. It needs polish, a lot of it, but isn't that what we're here for?

    :)

    Guys, what do you think about it. I personally think Ubuntu Touch needs a lot of work since 2 Years and they did not come up... but anyway interesting Idea.

    1) I agree that UT needs much more work. Apps and speed are not where they need to be.
    2) pause and consider the following for a moment, however....
    a) UT is largely the same as ubuntu server/desktop (I think that the only big difference is the Mir display server)
    b) Ubuntu is open in ways that android is semi-closed
    c) Ubuntu can be built for any device whose kernel drivers & other necessary code is published
    d) 2 Ubuntu phones in H2 2014
    Meizu
    BQ
    e) I'm working with another firm to push out an Ubuntu smart device ecosystem with fully open HW & SW
