Forums Added for Ubuntu for Phones, Jolla Sailfish OS, and Android Stick Computers

When we covered the announcement of Ubuntu for Phones two days ago, many quickly demanded that we give the fledgling mobile OS a place in our forums. And with an impressive gesture-driven interface, as well as official support from Canonical, it was really only a matter of time. We’re just as excited as you are, and we can’t wait to see the development and porting that is sure to begin when the first builds are made publicly available.

In addition to the much requested forum for Canonical’s latest and greatest, we’ve created a forum for another, albeit somewhat more obscure, operating system known as Jolla Sailfish. Sailfish OS is based on the Mer project, which is the extant fork of the now-defunct open source MeeGo operating system. Promising compatibility with many unmodified Android apps thanks to the use of Myriad’s Alien Dalvik, Sailfish could indeed become an interesting prospect for some.

Finally, we have also given a home to all development on Android Stick Computers such as the popular Mk808 Mini PC. While not exactly a mobile device, these diminutive boxes carry many of the same internals as our mobile phones, and are powered by a mobile OS.

Those wishing to dive into the discussion can do so by visiting the newly created forums:
