Ubuntu Carrier Advisory Group has just received one of its most important members, the largest mobile network operator in the US, Verizon Wireless.
Canonical has managed to gain the support of Verizon Wireless, one of the most important mobile carriers in the world, in order to build its Ubuntu Touch operating system.
If Ubuntu Touch is to be successful, it must gather a lot of support from different mobile operators from around the world and meet their expectations before a final product is made available.
“Verizon Wireless is joining Ubuntu’s Carrier Advisory Group to participate in technology discussions around this new platform, which has the ability to bring new and exciting features to developers and ultimately, customers,” stated Samir Vaidya from the Device Technology team at Verizon Wireless.
The simple adhesion to the Ubuntu Carrier Advisory Group doesn’t mean that Verizon Wireless is backing Ubuntu Touch or that it will release any handsets based on this OS.
