Ubuntu’s scopes is attractive feature, that gives you related content on one screen, instead of hiding it behind different apps. The smartphone will have top 50 apps including Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox, Evernote and Amazon.

One of the big differences between Ubuntu phone and other mobile operating systems is that it’s designed to work like a desktop OS when connected to a big screen. Instead of mirroring the screen you can use the OS like Ubuntu on a PC or laptop.

The phone is now available for sale all over Europe for €169.90.
