Ubuntu on phone, tablets, latest demos

Posted by m@ddy – July 29, 2013

Here's Ubuntu OS for phones built on Android BSP (Board Support Package). They can bring on various phone devices in very short time. Ubuntu OS makes playing videos easier. Ubuntu User interface is very sleek. Through Preview window you can see the videos while playing games or working on any other app. Ubuntu OS runs on different engine no need of engines like JAVA, Dolby. Ubuntu applications written by CUTE support HTML5. It's different software architecture. Ubuntu provides complete ecosystem also provides SDK system for developers they can use CUTE create their own apps. So that Simple app can run both PC and Phone. Ubuntu OS runs on high end phones, require powerful CPU capable to run both Android and Ubuntu OS at the same time. To do this optimization required of phone feature complete like you can write SMS from desktop in all languages. Users don't need to have other laptop or PC to communicate between Android and Ubuntu. It's an Unique experience run Both OS on One Phone. For now Android apps can't run on Ubuntu. It is possible only after optimzing aspects like graphics. Android apps for Touch. but running CUTE apps is different thing.They can easily Ubantu open source can be write on Android code.there is lot of room for optimization like display performance VD development finally putting them together is easy concept. Ubuntu lowered the basic effort to put Ubuntu on Android. BSP drivers are almost same so effort for OEM is easier to adapt Ubuntu on their hardware. Last year Ubuntu was on OMAP4. Now on qualcomm S4. Wrote with "Ubuntu control app". User can control Ubuntu session by phone only. If click on shut down Ubuntu control app the phone still can work on Android.

To run Ubuntu 1GB RAM. 1.5Ghz Dualcore CPU are minimum requirements. Aiming to different market segment.
People who think that Android is not sufficient they can turn on Ubuntu. Android is designed for small phones where as Ubuntu they design for large screens. Legacy of Linux is for big screens and multitasking. The main focus is running Ubuntu on multiple device like phone, tablet, TV and many more.

Ubuntu Mobile OS and Ubuntu for Android at CES 2013

Ubuntu for Android is imminent

Posted by Charbax – November 15, 2012

An official Canonical YouTube channel released this video:

This can mean that Ubuntu for Android is imminent. They seem to suggest that consumers can soon choose Ubuntu support next time that they buy a smartphone.

Here are some of my questions about Ubuntu for Android:

- Does Canonical work only on specific exclusive hardware and chip makers? Is there some kind of exclusive partnership with a Samsung or other Smartphone/chip maker to optimize and fully hardware accelerate Ubuntu on Android for them?

- Does the PC/Laptop Docking happen through a standard MHL connector compatible with multiple designs/sizes of phones and tablets?

- Are most Android 5.0 phones going to be compatible with alternative OSes to boot on top of Android? Can we soon just download the 700mb Ubuntu app made on Android Native Development Kit (NDK) on Google Play Store (if our Android device is officially supported with full hardware acceleration) to activate the on-top-of-Android-boot functionality?

- Can Chrome OS on Android be available at the same time? How about Google TV on Android? My big guess for Android 5 is that this multi-OS strategy is going to be a deep new feature of the next Android release. Dock your next Android device and it can switch or boot on the external HD display any alternative Linux OS such as Chrome OS, Google TV, Ubuntu, and maybe even Windows RT.
