Though, it actually turns out that Canonical had something way more impressive and tremendous than this up its sleeve.
In the announcement made a few days ago, Canonical unveiled Ubuntu for phone, a complete performing Ubuntu distribution which is designed for current multicore devices and for also upcoming smartphone gadgets. In case that you may be wondering that when Ubuntu for Android was shown about a year past, then why to release this? The reason is, this is a absolutely different undertaking as opposed to what has ever been created and accomplishes much more productive work from a smartphone as compared with what any cellphone OS has been effective to get done.
Folks from The Verge were kind enough to do a hands on online video for a device that had Ubuntu for phones [http://ubuntuforandroid.org] and if truth is to be told, at a very first glimpse, it looks something that is a technology of time to come. 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 look for from a computer but that shouldn't be a issue 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 planning to release. So if all goes well, we might actually see our mobiles taking the place of our desktop PCs after all.
An announcement like this is certain to obtain mixed response from the likely consumers as well as from experts all around the globe and while a number of of the individuals who are already taking advantage of Linux or Ubuntu are rejoicing over the fact that they are finally going to get a fully functioning Ubuntu as an OS for personal smart phones formally, other people fear that Ubuntu might not be fruitful to obtain its spot in an iOS and Android dominant marketplace.

Though, prior to jumping to any final thoughts, we will need to first have patience for Ubuntu for phones [http://ubuntuforandroid.org] to roll out officially and see how fruitful it ends up being once the concept gets favoured among the masses. Nevertheless, till then check out the clips which individuals at Ubuntu For Android were kind enough to put up on their blog along with the UI features that this innovative new Operating System is going to bring.
