Ubuntu's smartphone OS will be ready to launch on October 17th

Ubuntu logoThe Ubuntu Edge smartphone may have missed its crowdfunding goal by a huge amount, but the Ubuntu Touch operating system is far from dead — it now has a planned release date of October 17th. That's according to a blog post from Canonical employee and QA community coordinator Nicholas Skaggs, who said that Ubuntu is "committed to delivering an image" of the OS for supported devices (Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10).

That's backed up by a post on the Ubuntu Phone Team mailing list that confirms "phone 1.0 will be a reality" in four and a half weeks. In the meantime, both posts implore interested users to download the current images and report bugs to the QA team to help them get everything sorted out before the October launch. As for when we might see official Ubuntu Touch phones, Canonical promised them for early next year.
