Ubuntu Smartphone OS User Interface with the revolutionary idea of "Scopes"

Rather than laying out all the apps in grid as in Android and iOS, Ubuntu introduces us with the revolutionary idea of "Scopes". Ubuntu phone is looking to integrate contents and services via "Scopes", which will integrate various apps and services into an user friendly interface, so users don't have to scroll through a list of icons. For example, the NearBy scope will aggregate local services centered around where you are currently located, along with reviews of local restaurants and weather in your area all in the same page. So, you don't have to open up different apps and web pages to view all these information.  
It will go on sale exclusively across Europe for 169.90 (around £127, $194, AU$ 249) on Monday 9 February, 2015 in a flash sale. If you want to grab a BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition, you'll need to be really quick, as there will only be a limited amount of devices available on Monday. Furthur flash sales and then more widespread availability of this device across Europe will follow in the next two to three weeks.
A number of networks such as amena.com, giffgaff and Portugal Telecom will offer sim bundles with this BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition.
