Google should ditch Dalvik VM out of Android. Go native, that will remove the lags. Additionally, standardize the screen resolutions.

I don't trust a guy talking about "their mission" and looking like a godfather's right hand:)...ubuntu/mozilla/sailfish/tizen/bb/ios/an­droid/wp and maybe more, competition is good but a little work in the hardware department wouldn't hurt

Finally an OS that will take full advantage of our smartphone's hardware without sucking resources and draining battery badly, next step is to launch Ubuntu store and let's forget about WinAndrIOS.

This is exactly what MeeGo would've been. Glad to see the spirit of MeeGo living on.

Didn't see a back button anywhere? No multi levels in an app? Or is the swype left really a back gesture and not an app switch gesture?

Didn't look secure at all... or does it only work when using my finger using fingerprint recognition or something? No need for unlock screen?
And where is the Ubuntu market place for buying apps?

I'm so hoping that "4" for 2014 is a typo. :|
