What I like about Ubuntu Edge - a desktop replacement smartphone

Friday, July 26, 2013





Ubuntu, a Linux based operating system, recently unveiled its smartphone with a set of very smart features.
-It has 4.5 inch screen made of sapphire crystal which the company claims to be resistant to scratches produced by coins and keys.
-128Gb space plus 4Gb Ram.

 

It has dual operating systems ( Ubuntu and Android ) which you are able to choose on startup.

The most interesting feature is that once you hook the phone to monitor via HDMI and keyboard, it becomes a CPU. All the mobile applications are now in form of proper desktop applications and all of your data is synchronized.
As I have been using Ubuntu on my laptop for the past few years, which I am impressed with, I hope that Ubuntu does well in the smartphone market too.
