BQ goes global with Ubuntu



on 10 August 2015

BQ Aquaris E5 HD Ubuntu Edition

The successful European launches of the BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition and its slightly larger brother, the BQ Aquaris E5 HD Ubuntu Edition, have seen the appetite for Ubuntu phones grow the world over.

As result of this latent demand, BQ has created an Ubuntu global store where anyone can now buy an Aquaris Ubuntu Edition handset. We’re really excited by this move and BQ’s clear commitment to ensuring more of our fans worldwide get their hands on these devices. Visit BQ’s global store here.

We know (and BQ has acknowledged) that network frequency, and mobile operator, compatibility in some countries, such as the US, will limit some of the handset and OS functionality that European users are presently enjoying. However, this worldwide launch will provide the opportunity for our fans across the globe to get a taste of the Ubuntu OS and experience it for themselves on a great range of BQ devices.

We stand committed to our aim of bringing the best of Ubuntu phone to individual regions across the globe, so that more of you can enjoy the unique Ubuntu mobile experience.
