Dying for an Ubuntu Linux phone? Here’s how much it’ll cost you

Speaking at the CeBIT conference in Hanover, Germany on Tuesday, Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth said we should expect the first Ubuntu phones to be “mid-high end” devices, with price tags in the $200 to $400 (£120 to £240) range.

That’s a much different approach than the one taken by Mozilla, which has been targeting emerging markets with open source Firefox OS phones that it hopes will soon cost as little as $25.
