Geeks among us can’t wait to try out the upcoming Ubuntu smartphone. Canonical promised to bring us the true convergence, allowing users to run same apps across different devices. This means smartphones, tablets and computers.
The main idea is simple… and sound. All you need is a powerful smartphone that, once docked, can work like a full-blown Linux PC. This in turn would make multiple devices obsolete since your smartphone would be able to replace a PC.
Have hard time imagining this? Canonical’s Community Manager Jono Bacon is there to help. He created a video to show the Reddit client Karma Machine running on a phone, tablet and Ubuntu PC. You’ll see how the UI can adapt to each display… Pretty powerful stuff. Or so we think. Check it out and let us know how you like it…
Before I let you go I must add that this capability likely won’t come before October when Ubuntu 14.10 will be launched, featuring the all-new new Mir display server and Unity 8 UI that make this magic possible.
