Have you been waiting patiently for the Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition smartphone to go on sale?
Well, today your wait is over.
A number of OMG! readers pinged us this morning with a link to the Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition’s product page on the English-facing store front of Jd.com (the official stockist for this Ubuntu phone outside of China).
Interestingly the product page for the phone is not currently surfaced through the store’s search results, and can only be accessed via the link. Or I should say ‘links’ as there’s a separate page for Russian buyers).
32GB Model Only
Only the 32GB/3GB RAM model of Meizu PRO 5 Ubuntu Edition is currently being made available to purchase. and only in gold.
Options for additional colors and storage/ram configurations are not currently listed on the store, though were mentioned by Canonical and Meizu at various press events earlier this year.
The 5.7-inch phone costs $369.99 with free shipping to the US and Europe (expected to take a couple of days).
Be aware that until Miracast support lands in Ubuntu Touch you won’t be able to use this device to power a desktop PC experience through convergence.
Thanks Liam, & Ron!
