Re: Bugs in Ubuntu Touch OTA-15


There is one big problem with fairphone2. It is its price. As we can see on a fairphone site this phone is going to cost over 500$. At least the most active developers should be able to buy it cheaper. What I found sad while release of the first ubuntu phone was the availability. I translated at that moment 60-80% of the system blind and wasn't able to buy the phone to correct the bugs. If software development in a community will work the same way as translations, this phone will never be a serious device. 500$ for poor working device? No, thank you.

 I've been wondering: with Canonical pushing the Fairphone 2 in Barcelona, will it be upgradeable to be able to run Ubuntu Personal? I believe it needs a 64bit kernel? If so, I'll get one of those.

Dear Norbert, 
 I'm afraid that there will be no new updates (except security). All 
 resources are focused on Snap system. So all our phones are 'abandoned'... 
 This is known and even until certain point understandable. 
 What seems to be missing, at least in public, is a plan or milestones to get the new snap world into the hands of the user in form of some *phone device*.
