Another would be iPhone Killer?

Yeah. It's a crowdfunding campaign and they'll have to raise around one million per day in pledges to reach their goal and get it to take off, so it likely will never happen.

But the form factor is nice, too. I haven't seen anything that looks as good next to an iPhone aside from the HTC One.

Umm, Android is a Linux fork.

Not sure if you were responding to me, but that was kind of my point. Why would one need both on a smartphone?

So to name a few features, it has the fastest multicore processor available, 4 GB RAM, 128 GB storage, an HD sapphire crystal display, stereo speakers, dual-LTE, NFC, 8 MP low-light camera, 2 MP front camera, fully integrated Ubuntu desktop PC when docked, it dual boots Android and Ubuntu and it's unlocked.

Not bad.
Interesting. Would also guess that it could easily run Android apps/apks.

The only thing that interests me is the 4GB of RAM. The display maybe. Slap iOS on the bad boy and I'd buy it!

Unbuntu when docked. Does this mean it turns into an Unbuntu PC when plugged into a keyboard and monitor? That would be pretty darn cool.

Itty bitty laptop!

that's what it sounds like. just seems like an odd strategy to me in the day of cloud computing. unless you're a tinfoil kind of person and only keep your stuff locally.

This isn't limited to accessing media. I think the ability to run desktop Linux programs is the appeal here.

In order to do that you'd need some sort of dock, monitor, keyboard, and mouse anyway. seems to defeat the purpose of a mobile desktop OS on a phone.

granted it wasn't Ubuntu, but I thought the Motorola Atrix pretty much told us the docking phone wasn't a very viable model.
