This is the first phone that will fully utilize Ubuntu that will be released in the market. However it doesn't posses the same power of the fabled Ubuntu Edge. On a positive note, we'll be able to use the Ubuntu experience with this phone that can turn into a desktop PC when docked in an external monitor. Aside from that we can use the open source apps made for Ubuntu phone and should run in HTML5 format. It will also have a fresh new UI experience compared to Android, IOS and Windows called the Scopes.
Now the exciting part of this is it could spark the rise of Ubuntu phones! Who knows, we might finally be able to see the Ubuntu version of the MX4 soon! It will be priced at USD 190 that's roughly around PHP 8,400.00 out of straight conversion.
