Ubuntu for phones looks like it is much better and easier to use than iOS. That only leaves design left to compete with. That makes it a lot easier to compete and takes that added stress away from phone manufacturers.
It is way more than design. It is footprint, brand loyalty and years of successful advertisement to help achieve that status.
Most normal computer users and phone users have never heard of Unbuntu or ever messed with linux or unix.
Android is making the biggest dent and among android the GSIII seems to have made the biggest dent.
Windows has completely flopped in the phone market...although they flopped in the MP3 player and seem to have flopped with the current tabloid/laptop market they tried to enter.
New does not make better.
I think Iphone and android market are not going to be over taken by the ubuntu market.
If anything I think it will just further dilute the android market because the Apple market has such a strong history and footprint.
I doubt this new situation winds up being more than a small ripple in the water...at best.
