How many mobile operating systems do consumers really need? This is definitely not an easy topic to discuss. but it appears that Canonical believes that there might be room for one more. The software developer has recently posted a job opening for a Business Development Manager for the launch of an Ubuntu smartphone operating system.

Canonical discussed the possibility of bringing the platform to smartphones and tablets late last year and most recently demonstrated Ubuntu on a smartphone at Mobile World Congress. But between Android, iOS, Windows Phone and BlackBerry OS it already feels like the market is getting a bit too crowded.

Now before we get too far ahead of ourselves, this could possibly be one big misunderstanding. The posting could just be calling for an engineer to be working on the Ubuntu for Android project, not an entirely new Ubuntu mobile operating system. Either way, if you'd like to see Ubuntu officially make its way to your smartphone and feel that you've got the skill sets to contribute, why not visit the source link and put your bid in for the gig?
