Each day, the arrival of a new product to the tech market or we can say to the tech war creates a threat to the pre-existing ones. Something similar happened today, when finally the Ubuntu released an OS for smartphones. Here are all the details about the new Ubuntu that has been released today.
Rather going for both the tablet and smartphone, the company behind Debian Linux operating system decided to focus more on smartphones only. According to Canonical, the smartphone Ubuntu will use all four edges of the screen for a more impressive experience.
Ubuntu also gives handset OEMs and mobile operators the ability to converge phone, PC and thin client into a single enterprise phone. This is an important aspect of Ubuntu OS for smartphones. This means it is not only limited to your smartphone screen but using this you can also boot a full Ubuntu desktop from the phone when it is docked with a screen. This means you can access both your phone and your desktop through this new OS.
This new version of Ubuntu has been divided into two basic segments: the high-end superphone, and the entry-level basic smartphone, which helps those users who use only the phone and messaging but who might embrace the use of web and email on their phone, to grow the use of data amongst consumers.
Check out the video below which gives an in-dept look at Ubuntu for smartphones.
The clean but mesmerizing look of the smartphones makes Ubuntu even more attractive. This is because controls and icons only appear when needed, keeping the look minimal, and necessary. Furthermore, for developers this is something of a must-have and many well-known developers would agree.
