Ubuntu Phone Launch Delayed Until Early 2015

If you were planning on getting or giving one of the new Ubuntu-powered smartphones for the holiday season, you’ll have to get creative and wrap up a picture of it to give as a gift. Canonical announced that there will be a slight last minute delay on the rollout and they emphasize the slight delay part since it looks like the first Ubuntu phones will be introduced 1Q2015.

Canonical clearly underestimated the difficulties of launching a product in the mobile market and needed more time. But, it could be worse: Ubuntu Phone should hopefully be good and stable when it’s released.
