ubuntu is not for any phones. If you're referring to the recent press release, it concerns android handsets and tablets that use docking stations and convert the device into an small PC like environment, not a telephony one.. ubuntu is NOT a phone OS.

Android or Maemo are linux-based OSs.

If that's possible, it won't be easy. HP uses their own webOS.

What's the exact model of your phone.

In words my son might use...

Face it dude, you need a better phone!

I suggest going droid next. There are some nice options. If you opt for cheap, remember you get what you pay for.
