Esla spor opted not to highlight the differences of the Windows Phone operating system, or the possible technical advantages of choosing a Lumia instead of an iPhone.

Canonical announces Ubuntu for Android

Canonical announced what may become one of the most interesting projects involving Android smartphone platform. The company announced yesterday (22) Ubuntu for Android, its Linux distribution pocket.

 

While many criticize the manufacturers because they are launching increasingly powerful smartphones(without necessarily making use of all this potential) Canonical will take advantage of multi-core processors such devices with the integration of Ubuntu. So, when you connect your smartphone into adock and a special monitor, you are using Ubuntu and Android simultaneously. The announcementcame from the blog of Mark Shuttleworth, who like to point out that this is not the “Phone Ubuntu” we are all waiting.

Interestingly, this is not a solution involving virtual machines or something. Because Android already runs a sort of Linux kernel, the “marriage” between the two runs pretty well, and you can even run both systems simultaneously. So even if you are using Ubuntu the smartphone will notify you of new emailsor messages and give you the opportunity to answer the call normally.

Within the Ubuntu you can also run applications for Android, Unity within the interface we already know(and in some cases, hate). The same goes for contacts that are on the phone, or notifications. The integration is complete, as we see in the video below.

The Ubuntu for Android will come with a basic package of programs (Firefox, Chrome, VLC, and others), but in theory you can install any other program available to the system (provided there is space available on your smartphone, of course). With this, it’s like you take your PC anywhere in your pocket.This is particularly interesting for companies that could, for example, benefit from this concept cuttingequipment costs for employees.

To run Ubuntu for Android will require at least one smartphone with dual-core processor running at 1GHz, 512MB RAM, 2GB free storage, HDMI output and video acceleration. Basically, any high-endappliance launched in 2011 now fits these requirements.

Unfortunately, Ubuntu for Android is not yet available, but this special site explains how the system works, invites companies to better understand what it offers and – who knows – now integrate it into thesmartphone direct from factory. He will also be publicly demonstrated at MWC 2012, which begins next week
