- Ubuntu Phone review from Engadget: “years in the making, but still not consumer-ready”
- The Kubuntu project has published reference images of Plasma Mobile, a new mobile platform based on Ubuntu mobile and KDE technologies

- Ubuntu 14.10 is now no longer supported – upgrade!
- The latest OTA Update for Ubuntu phones brings shell rotation (the display rotates with the phone) and fixes battery life…
