    Canonical unveils its third Ubuntu phone, the Meizu MX4

    Canonical pushes a bit harder into the mobile space.

    After taking more than two years to get Ubuntu into its first smartphone, Canonical is picking up the pace. The second Ubuntu handset was announced earlier this month, and tomorrow, a third is going on sale in Europe. The Meizu MX4 Ubuntu Edition takes Meizu's existing MX4 (a Chinese-only Android device released last September) and replaces Google's operating system with Canonical's home screen-focused OS. Canonical says it's primarily focusing on attracting "enthusiasts" with the MX4, and the device's mildly eccentric buying system certainly reflects this.
    Unusual sales tactics aside, the MX4 is a definite step-up from previous Ubuntu devices. It offers a 5.36-inch screen with a 1152 x 1920 resolution, a 20.7-megapixel camera, and a quad-core 1.7GHz processor. However, there's only 16GB of storage available with no option to expand this with a microSD card.
