Is the code actually ready? Where is the code?

Can it be installed on any shipping Android devices or any about to be shipped?

How does it coexist with Android? Can it just run Android apps? Dual boot? Virtualization?

Can it run Firefox OS apps?

How come they have a working phone system considering that Ubuntu for Nexus 7 doesn't seem to be ready, and that phones are obviously harder to support than tablets?

I'm pretty sure this mobile version of Ubuntu will ship a JavaScript implementation, yes. And Ubuntu just might ship Alien Dalvik. Even if not, given enough tinkering, you might install it yourself.

It will not run dalvik, it will just leverage the hardware drivers (HAL libraries).
It will be Qt5/QML based
