He also added that more established phone makers are expected to come on board the platform by 2015. Moreover, the list of carriers to support the OS hasn’t been released yet but more information may surface next week at Mobile World Congress.

The two companies were reportedly chosen due to their expertise in introducing handset to specific markets with targeted features and specs. Shuttleworth also added that they plan to have the top 50 mobile apps on Ubuntu by the end of the year to help its OS get more traction to consumers.
