I know that the basic question of running android apps on ubuntu has already been answered, but mostly for ubuntu desktop. What I was wondering is, if there will be a way to download and run android apps on ubuntu phone. would be great because it would solve the problem of not having many apps available in the beginning...

In short the answer is: No

The most important reason being that:
Ubuntu apps will be written in QML toolkit and HTML5 technologies. Whereas Android apps are mostly written in Core Java.

Yes and no...You will probably not be able to run them natively.

But hey,this is the Linux world,someone will make a hack for you to be able to run them.
