Android uses the Linux kernel. However, most of the user facing parts of the OS and apps run in a Java VM like environment called dalvik and are not 'native Linux' like this mobile version of Ubuntu are claiming to be.
2014 will be too late. At that time Android OS will own 90% of the market share. Who wants to pay $1000 unlocked IPHONE? When you can get the top of the line Android phone for $500 plus triple the processor power?
I don't see Linux apps to be successful as Android.
Wouldn't put Ubuntu on my phone in a million years with as many times as their updates have screwed my desktop installs up! In fact, wouldn't/won't put any variation of that distro on my desktop again!! -- The Firefox alternative. »www.mozilla.org/projects/seamonkey/
