BQ Aquaris E5 HD Ubuntu Edition – When it comes to shopping for a new phone. there are only two operating systems to consider. The BQ Aquaris E5 wants to be the third by offering the first HD smartphone to run on Ubuuntu, the Linux-based operating software. The new device is set to feature some hefty specs starting with a 5″ IPS HD display, a Quad Core processor, and 13 megapixel shooter. But, hardware aside what are the significantly differences between Ubuuntu and the rest? For starters, the Aquarius E5 HD has an all-gesture interface leaving no room for a home or back button. It also lacks the ecosystem of apps that Android and iOS has built over the years, but it makes up for it with zero glut; Ubuuntu phones come unlocked, and with two SIM slots.
