    I can well imagine what it is. Their target market definitely doesn't include me, but as usual I am in the overwhelming minority. :ouch:

    Here it is:
    http://www.ubuntu.com/devices/phone

    No java

    "With all-native core apps and no Java overhead, Ubuntu runs well on entry-level smartphones – yet it uses the same drivers as Android."
     
  4. Java overhead? Is that really a problem on Android? Especially compared to the overhead of running a full X11 desktop stack on a smart phone?

    I have seen how Ubuntu 12.10 performs on recentish hardware. I will not make assumptions here, but my expectations are rather low.

    So basically it's like a full port of Ubuntu Desktop OS to a smartphone?
    Or it's dumbed down. :rolleyes:
