Verizon Wireless Joins Ubuntu Carrier Advisory Group to Shape and Launch its Smartphone OS in US

Verizon Wireless Joins Ubuntu Carrier Advisory Group to Shape and Launch its Smartphone OS in US
 
 

Verizon has joined Ubuntu Carrier Advisory Group (CAG) of Canonical on Thursday. Verizon Wireless will not only help Ubuntu to shape its Linux OS smartphone but may also launch it in US for the first time.


Verizon Wireless has now become a member of the Canonical's Ubuntu Carrier Advisory Group. CAG has many mobile operators as its members but all are from outside US. Verizon is the very first member of CAG that belongs to US. Canonical officially states that the US largest mobile network operator will support Ubuntu's Linux-based smartphones to shape 'into the most compelling new, alternative platform for mobile.'

Samir Vaidya from Verizon Wireless Device Technology team said: “Verizon Wireless is joining Ubuntu’s Carrier Advisory Group to participate in technology discussions around this new platform, which has the ability to bring new and exciting features to developers and ultimately, customers.”

It looks like that Verizon can launch Ubuntu OS smartphones in US. But when Arstechnica asked both companies about their future plans of releasing Ubuntu mobiles on Verizon, the answer is almost a no. Canonical states that "Verizon Wireless joining the CAG does not mean that they are committed to selling Ubuntu phones. The CAG is a forum for mobile operators to influence the development of Ubuntu for smartphones and Verizon Wireless will be part of the discussions that happen in that forum."


Verizon Wireless also shows no concerns to launch the Ubuntu device. Verizon spokesperson said, "We’re looking forward to participating in the Carrier Advisory Group to listen and learn more about this platform. We’ve always supported multiple mobile operating systems, but ... today’s news doesn’t mean that we’re committing to selling Ubuntu phones."

Canonical will likely launch Ubuntu's Linux OS powered smartphones for sale during the first quarter of the next year.
