For me the main reason, why nobody knows about it is, because you can not buy a phone, preinstalled with that os.
The ones available before at the Canonical time, was very low level hardware and very limited amount of devices.
I am a buyer of the very first release of the BQ E4.5 Ubuntu Edition.
I still have my BQ E4.5 and BQ Aquaris FHD, but what can I do with them? Hardware is very weak,. The performance is very low and the camera for photos and videos is almost unusable. That was my reason, why I bought more than a year ago a Galaxy S8 with spyware Android.
Before I was using the BQ E4.5 for a looong time.
Maybe it will become more interesting, if Anbox is available, so you can install all the Android Apps. Because what's the use of the best os, if there are no apps?
Even I am not using it, but the world is asking for Whats App.
If there is no Whats App available, it's not interesting to the people.
See here: https://www.statista.com/statistics/260819/number-of-monthly-active-whatsapp-users/
This 2017 1.5 billion people are already out, because they are active Whats App users.
Even there is Telegram, people are using Whats App.
And to be truth, Whats App is way more advanced than Telegram.
@3arn0wl said in Making Ubuntu Touch an easy choice:
I'm still interested, @joe, but you have to get the editing process sorted out.
Editing is usually not a problem. We have lots of people who can review and edit. It's just the writing/creating part that doesn't seem to happen very easily.
We can use pad.ubports.com , or any tool to write something, then you can send it to the marketing group, and we will edit and post etc.
If we can get enough people to form more of a team around writing, then we will put them all together. @lionelb has been doing most of it on his own in the past.
Another angle similar to that is getting local colleges/universities aware through their Computer Science Clubs (some actually have FOSS/linux clubs too). Having them cover it, and in turn the university papers, could not just bring in new people, but new volunteers to the project.
Anyway, whether it is a school paper, or local/national, press release templates are a good way to jump start that so folks don't have to "create from scratch" every single time. I wonder building something like this would be helpful in getting folks the confidence to share...essentially, a press page is a bunch of templates that makes it easier for reporters to cover it.
The press page contains a "press kit"...sometimes in the page, and in zip folders (with logos, headshots of core devs, origin story summarized, etc.)
