If you count yourself among those people, then Chinese Meizu has a treat for you -- a near 3 minute-long demo of Ubuntu Touch running on top of its MX3 flagship. The walk-through provides a glimpse into the way Ubuntu's mobile OS will function, and, of course, how it'll look. We won't spoil anything for you so that you enjoy all 2 minutes and 43 seconds of it, but it suffices to say that the OS looks to be planning on rivaling Android in terms of functionality.
Ubuntu Touch is expected to ship by the end of the year, and it already has enlisted two hardware partners in Chinese Meizu and Spanish bq. What's more, carriers like Verizon, T-Mobile USA, Vodafone, EE, Three Group, and others, intent on breaking up the OS duopoly, have also pledged their support in some form or another. Not a bad start for Cannonical, but we all know it's going to take significantly more for the new entrant to actually manage to turn its raid into permanent occupation.
