Bq Ubuntu Phone Goes on Sale Next Week at €169, Meizu Device Coming Soon – OMG! Ubuntu!

As we shared towards the end of last year, the Bq Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition handset will go on sale in Europe from next week priced at €169.

Bq has you covered with an exclusive ‘Ubuntu Edition’ of their popular Duo case accessory designed especially for the Aquaris E4.5, which is being made available for purchase alongside the handset.

The BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu edition is the first phone that will let phone fans snap up an Ubuntu-running device for themselves. Best known as an open-source operating system for computers, Ubuntu is expanding to phones as part of a plan that will see the software power everything from TVs to drones. And to kick things off, the BQ phone will be up for grabs between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. (CET) on Wednesday 11 February.
