Ubuntu One on mobile for Maverick

A few months back the Ubuntu One team launched mobile contacts syncing, our first step into the mobile world. After a few initial rocky Beta days of cleaning up some scaling rough edges, it's been a smooth ride since. It turned out to be a very popular service, which has us excited, and reinforced our eagerness to build more mobile services for Maverick.
While the full roadmap hasn't been set in stone yet, we've had a lot of feedback about offering a separate, feature-rich mobile service at a lower price, as well as integration into Android.
We've decided to take on some of these challenges, and are committed to delivering more and more mobile services, some of which we will introduce around the Ubuntu Maverick release in October.

In the meantime, we've decided to extend the 30-day trial period for mobile contact sync until the Maverick release, where we will re-instate it as part of a bigger, juicier and with more native integration, mobile package.

This is effective now, so if you've signed up for our paid account exclusively for mobile sync, feel free to downgrade to the free plan, we will notify all mobile users before the 30-day trial is turned on again.

As we finish our research and initial development, we will announce the features that will be rolled out and probably open up for testing in our alpha phase to a small group of lucky people.

It seems to be the case every release, but, the future is exciting!

  1. This is wonderful news! I am really looking forward to testing this with my Nexus One.

    Ubuntu One is a pretty awesome service and I’m really excited about it. I’m glad the team has the resources to continue expanding and improving it.

  2. I installed Ubuntu One Contacts for Android on my Milestone today, it works very well with my account and I had no problem.
    Very good service as well as all of Ubuntu.
    Congratulations
