Hi, welcome to AskUbuntu ! Can you be a little more specific in your question ? If I get you right, you want to know if Python will be available for application development on Ubuntu Phone. Is that right ? Take time to be clearer and more specific in your question to get better answers –  NorTicUs Jun 14 '13 at 21:31

It's possible, but not encouraged. The Python runtime consumes a lot of memory, which is very limited on mobile devices. Instead we offer an easy yet powerful solution in the form of QML, which uses simple UI declarations to build beautiful interface, Javascript to build functionality and logic into it, and it's all executed by Qt executables which make them much more efficient.
