Since Ubuntu phone gonna hit the market very soon, I was wondering if there's gonna be separate forum for Ubuntu phone or AskUbuntu will do the job?

    I think it is important to understand that askubuntu is not an internet-forum, but a Q&A site. This is a big difference, and although maybe not crucial to your question if a separate entity for Phone willb e coming, I think it is important to not this.

The FAQ states (as on-topic):

Using and administering Ubuntu, including official Ubuntu derivatives.

I would consider the Ubuntu Phone to fall into one of those categories. We already support Ubuntu on the Nexus 7 and I don't see where Ubuntu Phone will be that different.

I also think the Ubuntu Phone will not be a big enough topic to create a new Stack Exchange site or forum about.

However, the FAQ also states (as off-topic):

Issues with the next version of Ubuntu (Ubuntu+1) (More information about Alpha and Beta release issues).

So discussing this topic, e.g. hardware support, development, etc, would probably be considered off-topic right now.

    Issues (which probably means problems) in Ubuntu Phone is off-topic right now. I'm not sure all questions relating to Ubuntu Phone are off-topic. Most are currently unanswerable (not constructive), but we probably won't be getting a lot of off-topic questions until real testing is happening. Jan 28, 2013 at 13:37

    issues = problems = bugs.
