Ubuntu booth tour at MWC 2016, Convergence, Phones, Tablets, Drones, IoT and more

Posted by Charbax – March 3, 2016

After my interview with Mark Shuttleworth, here's my 17-minute Ubuntu booth tour video. Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition comes with 5.7" 1080p Exynos7420 octa-core ARM Cortex-A57/53, 3GB RAM. At MWC 2016, Canonical is showing Ubuntu Convergence running on a Nexus 4, running a "Full Ubuntu" Unuity 8 out of the phone on the slimport HDMI output from the phone. Running the exact same Ubuntu on desktops and on ARM Powered Smartphone. Canonical is really excited to see more powerful hardware to come out running this Ubuntu Convergence solution, here poiting out that the phone runs LibreOffice, Firefox, GIMP, xchat, gedit, making it possible to use this as a desktop device.

BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition Tablet runs on the MediaTek MT8163A Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 with Mali GPU and 2GB RAM. It runs a full Ubuntu, enabling to set it to Desktop mode to run any Ubuntu app.

Snappy Ubuntu Core delivers applications for Drones, Robots and the IoT market. Here showing off the UAVIA Snappy Ubuntu Core powered drone, running on a Toradex Freescale i.MX6 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 System on Module, making a more intelligent drone better to enable autonomous flight thanks to sense and avoid technologies. It also facilitates maintenance of drones by making remote software deployments secure, effective and failsafe. Snappy Ubuntu Core also is being demonstrated for home automation running on a Qualcomm Dragonboard 410c.

Samsung also showcases their new Samsung Artik 1, Samsung Artik 5 dual-core ARM Cortex-A7 with Mali400MP2 GPU, 512MB RAM, 4GB eMMC flash, built in wireless WiFi, Bluetooth, BLE, ZigBee, 6LoWPAN based Thread protocol for Google Nest.

Artik includes also cloud-based device management based on SmartThings Open Cloud providing SDKs to help connect endpoint devices to the cloud using Java, Android, iOS, PHP, and Python tools. Open Cloud is partially based on the Samsung SAMI data driven development platform. The Atik 5 development board with the module is available for $100 at digikey

Also at the Ubuntu booth is the lead developer for the Etherum decentralized software platform, using blockchain to power the IoT market. Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference. The Ethereum team now works on Slock.it, where the vision is that an unused bicycle in your shed gets a new lease on life. Parking spots can be sublet on demand. Airbnb apartments become fully automated. It's the future infrastructure of the Sharing Economy, Slock.it was shown at the Lift Conference here
