Hang on. I am catching up on things and it seems OMG-Ubuntu may have jumped the gun on the Mx5 Pro and convergence. Questions have been asked and info amended. Will add here later....

Later: It will have an usb-c connector and whether that can provide MHL depends on other hard-ware. And the phone likely will not have that. Bah, humbug!!!

This finally looks like a possible alternative to the N900. i couldn't find any really opened device to work with until now and the N900's performance & memory are really beginning to be a problem for me...

as i understand it can fully run as root - no user per app thing - is that true?

any advantages for maemo compared to this version of ubuntu?

Maemo can multitask for one. Maemo also has more applications for it.

See Is it possible to use Python with the Ubuntu SDK? I don't think that the current status is different:

pyqt might not be the best choice in terms of licensing commercial applications

And taken from the ubuntu-phone mailing list archive:

While PyOtherSide may work, it's not a supported language or platform for the Ubuntu SDK, so we can't guarantee that it will always work or work properly. I would encourage you to use Javascript instead of at all possible.

Since Ubuntu also uses libhybris, the device will be a viable port for Sailfish. The onle problem for me are the 5.7"

Not that good. Not like jolla. But I think Samsung got the best multitasksolution right now even I know that many wont agree multiwindow and splitscreen is more important than true multitasking for the simple reason that the user can execute several tasks in parallel.

can you explain? i couldn't find a source of info about this. does it use the annoying "application freeze" for saving battery of background applications like in android?

shouldn't it behave like in the desktop ubuntu?
