T-Mobile Backs Ubuntu Smartphone

Canonical announced the newest member of the Ubuntu Carrier Advisory Group is T-Mobile USA. The group is a consortium of advisors to help guide the development of the Ubuntu smartphone and are widely considered to be among the first carriers to offer the Ubuntu smartphone to their customers.

Canonical, unlike Google with Android, won't allow T-Mobile, or any carrier, too much control over the operating system's look and feel. Ubuntu is striving to prevent the interface fragmentation that plagues Android.
