Ubuntu Smart Phones Operating System Comes to Android

The Ubuntu operating system has been modified to run on smart phones. The Linux-based software will tolerate users to run desktop apps on their phones, allowing them to double for PCs when docked to monitors.

Ubuntu for phones is not a completely new operating system, but fairly smartphone interfaces that assist Ubuntu differentiates from other phone operating systems. The interface avoids Java in favour of native code. In fact, Ubuntu’s Web site encourages both HTML5 and native code apps, an benefit for developers who can create a single application for both the desktop and the PC.

Those phones won’t be able to run Android applications at all, and instead will run software developed for Ubuntu Phone operating system. On advanced end phones, user will also be able to dock your Ubuntu phones and connect a display and keyboard to run desktop style apps, but on the go user run mobile apps developed particularly for the new mobile version of Ubuntu.

The new version has been designed to work on last and present making Android phones which share the Linux kernel. This means Ubuntu can use again existing software drivers to control the hardware.

There are already 45,000 native applications for the system even if with several prominent omissions such as Adobe's Photoshop and the Office suite, unusual do exist.

Here with below shared 22-minute video, in that Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth would adore to tell you all about Ubuntu’s approach for the next years, which contain some neat segments on the mobile OS. Also, make sure to keep your eyes peeled during CES 8 to 11 January, as Canonical will be showing off more of the OS.

In any case of the current require of hardware associates, Canonical has created two versions of the mobile Ubuntu, one for lower end phones, and ones for the higher end. The system requirements for the lower end phone, which Canonical is referring to as entry level, are attractive standard: a 1Ghz Cortex A9 processor, 512MB to 1GB of RAM, 4 to 8GB of External MMC + SD flash storage, and a multi touch screen. The high-end super phone, is the one that can plug into PCs and become a desktop OS. This will require a quad-core A9 or an Intel Atom processor, a minimum of 1GB RAM, a minimum of 32GB flash storage, and a multi touch screen.

Optimistically, Canonical will be able to nab some hardware manufacturers, because a phone user can plug into a monitor and use as a fully featured desktop OS seems like a good idea.
