Ubuntu and Open Source updates and my views!

Online shopping website Snapdeal is selling two Ubuntu Phones made by Bq through its website. It is the first major international retailer to stock the Ubuntu Phone.

The two handsets are:

Bq Aquaris E4.5 – MSRP ?11,999
Bq Aquaris E5 – MSRP ?13,999 BQ-Aquaris-E4-5-Ubuntu1

Bq already ships its devices internationally, including to mainland Europe and the US. Compared to Andriod phones of same range, both of these Bq phones handle the Ubuntu Phone OS looks under powered but well enough for texting, calls and basic web-browsing. There’s a small but growing set of native apps available on the Ubuntu store.
The phone specifications are:

Aquaris E5

5-inch IPS screen (1280 x 720 pixels, 294 ppi)
MediaTek MT6582 CPU @ 1.3 GHz (quad-core)
16GB eMMC storage
13 MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing
2500 mAh battery

Aquaris E4.5

4.5-inch IPS screen (540×960, 240 ppi)
MediaTek MT6582 CPU @ 1.3GHz (quad-core)
8GB eMMC Storage
8 MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing
2150 mAh battery






Both of these phones  are easy to unlock and since hardware is identical on the Ubuntu and Android editions you can able flash an Android recovery image to your device.
