Would be a nice phone to combine with the IndieGogo project of NexDock (https://www.indiegogo.com/proj

Continuum is just blown out WP experience not full blown Windows 10

As much as I hate those who bash Windows Phone platform... I think you've got a valid point, unfortunately...
When I first heard about continuum, I thought the phone would be able to run desktop applications (or at least slightly revoked ones)...
Well, dream kaput...
Continuum is nothing but a cheesy, pretentious & half baked attempt from Microsoft... All about 'bloody bling'...
A good idea, albeit poorly executed...
And the fact that only The top tier Lumia 950 Series of phone would be able to run it was icing on the rotten cake...
Talk about niche of a niche!
3rd World is the major buyer of Windows phone...

How did they get their paws on an Exynos SoC...???
I thought that Exynos is solely for Sammy Phones?
Or am I living under a rock???
Anyhow, I wish this little OS best of luck... Although its strenuous to see this OS going far, to be honest!
We all are well aware of the fate of Blackberry 10 OS & Windows Phone platform (Dead OS Walking!)...!!!

No, Samsung sells Exynos processors to other manufacturers. There have been Meizu phones in the past that use Exynos processors.

Exynos is compatible with Linux kernel, and I guess Cannonical has optimised their Ubuntu kernel for this device, so there's nothing new here.

Linux is way different than closed source WP or BB OS.

Pure Linux, with no Android skin.
This OS must be fluid...

Yeah and you don't have to worry about the phone slowing down or how much storage you have because there are 0 apps for it.

You sure buddy? There are apps for it.

Most of that power's wasted on Android with almost no games getting even close to the capabilities of the latest SOCs, and Ubuntu has even less.
