Hallo Welt Systeme UG brings Ubuntu Touch to the upcoming Volla Phone

The UBports Foundation is proud and delighted to announce a new partnership with Hallo Welt Systeme UG, which will join our existing sponsors as a new Gold Sponsor. Hallo Welt Systeme UG is the maker of the new Volla Phone, that will have the option of shipping with Ubuntu Touch pre-installed as the basis for a true independent, alternative mobile operating system. Ubuntu Touch is a version of the Ubuntu operating system  ("OS") designed specifically for mobile devices, developed by the open source community, and supported and funded by the UBports Foundation.

"Today marks the start of a new phase for Ubuntu Touch and the UBports Foundation. With Volla bringing their hardware and their sponsorship to the Foundation we will be even better placed to support our community with the further development of Ubuntu Touch. We are extremely excited to be a partner in the Volla Phone project and to participate in the launch of  one of the first mass-produced and factory-installed Ubuntu Touch devices," stated UBports Foundation Deputy Chairman Ricardo Mendoza.

The UBports Foundation, which recently completed the incorporation process to become an officially approved foundation based in Germany, has as its purpose the provision of support to the UBports community in  developing Ubuntu Touch as well as associated projects. Bringing together our community with partners who utilize Ubuntu Touch in their commercial products will help us to ensure that we are at the same time clearly focused on the aims of our community and constantly moving forward with hardware and software development.

"With Ubuntu Touch we can ensure simplicity and privacy for a long term run. We have chosen Ubuntu Touch because as of today it stands out from other projects in the free non-Android mobile software space as being the most mature and the most suitable for daily use." Hallo Welt Systeme UG General Manager Dr. Jörg Wurzer said. "Building an alternative to Apple and Google's market is only possible in cooperation with strong partners.  With the help of the UBports Foundation and the UBports community, we are looking forward to pioneering and popularizing a free and independent, alternative mobile operating system."

Providing the best privacy-oriented mobile OS, with our users' freedom at the core of the projects we support, is the central goal of the Foundation. Our community is open to participation in all forms, whether it be software development, technical documentation, assistance with marketing or by providing sponsorship either financially or in kind - everything helps and is warmly welcomed.
