February 6, 2013 (FPRC) -- Ubuntu's actual web site had a rundown timekeeper for some thing which is "So close, you can almost touch it.", most of us thought that it was a variation of Ubuntu which will be optimized for touchscreen display gizmos like tablet PCs and smart phones. Though, it actually turns out that Canonical had something a lot more competitive and marvelous than this up its sleeve.
In the declaration done last week, Canonical declared Ubuntu for cell phones, a complete performing Ubuntu distribution that is created for current multicore handsets and for also succeeding smartphone gadgets. Just in case you happen to be thinking that if Ubuntu for Android was announced merely a year past, then what is the reason to announce this? Due to the fact, this is a tremendously diverse venture compared to what has ever been worked on and moreover performs a great deal more effective work from a smartphone compared to what what any mobile phone Operating System has been successful to handle.
Folks from The Verge were kind enough to do a hands on video for a device that had Ubuntu for android and if truth is to be told, at a very first glance, it looks something that is a technology of coming future. However, as the clip continues you will notice that the system lags a little when doing heavy tasks and multi tasking isn't up to the mark which you would expect from a particular computer but that shouldn't be a reason to worry since Ubuntu for phones is still under heavy development and what is demonstrated in the video is not even an Alpha version of what Canonical is hoping to release. So if all happens well, we might actually see our cell phones replacing our desktop PCs after all.
An story like this is certain to receive blended reaction from the typical consumers along with from pundits all around the globe and while most of the users who are already operating Linux or Ubuntu are rejoicing over the very simple fact that they are finally going to get a fully functioning Ubuntu as an OS for personal cell phones officially, other people are afraid of that Ubuntu might not be fruitful to secure its place in an iOS and Android dominant market. Remembrance of so put, it has been about a year since the Windows mobiles made their release into the market and till date, their contribution is almost nothing when when put next to the Google enhanced Android and Apple's very own iOS.
However, before jumping to any conclusions, we will have to first wait for Ubuntu for Android to roll out officially and see how successful it turns out to be once the product gets desirable among the masses. In any event, till then check out the clips which people at Ubuntu For Android were kind enough to put up on their blog along with the UI prime features that this newest OS is going to introduce.
