Ubuntu for phones

No comments
The most awaited 'Ubuntu for phones' has been launched. Ubuntu doesn’t have the overhead of a Java virtual machine, so all core applications run at full native speeds with a small memory footprint. That gives the user interface a luxurious, responsive feel without the requirement of premium hardware components.

And on the high end, Ubuntu paves the way for a new category of superphones, with a full PC desktop accessible just by docking the device to a monitor and keyboard. A truly handheld PC is the future of personal computing.

This amazing feature of superphones may replace phones, thin clients and laptops with a single secure corporate device in IT departments of organisations.

It has been designed to make all your phone content easier to access and your apps more immersive – every edge has a specific purpose, making all your apps, content and controls instantly accessible, without navigating back to the home screen every time.  It's a uniquely, beautifully converged experience.

It uses simple natural swiping gestures from the edges of the screen to make it easier than ever to access your content and switch between apps. Every edge of the phone is used, letting you move faster between apps, settings and content.


 Ubuntu lets you switch faster between running and favourite apps than any other phone. Swiping up from the bottom edge of the phone reveals app controls. You can hide or reveal them instantly, which means they don’t take up room on the screen, leaving you free to focus on the stuff that matters. Immerse yourself in your photos, web pages, music, messages and apps.

Apps like Facebook, Twitter, Google Maps, Gmail and Spotify are all available and it’s easy for web developers to install their sites as full applications using Ubuntu’s web app APIs. No doubt Ubuntu is the best for the developers.
