Continuing the discussion from 2x16: Indeskribable:
I read more about this on their website.
Interesting concept, and it reminds me of a bunch of the goals with Ubuntu Phone. A few thoughts:
- I think it is madness that they are not running this on Kickstarter or Indiegogo - they will get more traction there.
- They seem to be focusing more on the HTML5 apps thing, which was a key element of the Ubuntu Phone too, and a way to get around the issue of porting native apps. What I am unclear of though is whether users prefer these kinds of apps and their availability - e.g. is there a Spotify HTML5 app?
- Neat to see them doing convergence, but one bit of feedback I heard with the convergence story in Ubuntu was having to have meeting rooms plumbed with screens, keyboards, and mice for when you switch rooms. Obviously for individual users it is great though as you can have that set up at home.
- It seems expensive.
