Ubuntu comes to your phone.

Ubuntu have been the most favourite Linux distro, now Ubuntu is launching a mobile OS to take on iOS, Android and Windows Mobile.

Ubuntu Phone OS 1

 

 

Ubuntu Phone OS 2

 

 

 

System Requirements Entry Level Ubuntu smartphones High-end Ubuntu smartphones
Processor architecture 1 Ghz Cortex A9 Quad-core A9 or Intel Atom
Memory 512MB to 1GB Minimum 1GB
Storage 4 to 8GB eMMC+SD Minimum 32GB eMMC+SD
Multi-touch Yes Yes
Desktop convergence No Yes

 

Apps will be made by HTML5 and it seems that Ubuntu will be providing a dedicated SDK.  Along with that it seems that the apps available on Ubuntu Software Centre will be available on the Ubuntu phone OS too. So will be the Ubuntu One cloud service.

If it give a full blown Linux Desktop environment, along with Terminal and able to apt-get install , then I am very much sure all the geeks will ditch Android and iOS and jump to Ubuntu phone OS.

It is to be showcased in CES as the website says “If you are going to CES, stop by booth 30659 in LVCC South Hall 3 (Upper Level) or, contact us to arrange a meeting.”  Click the source link for more details, and official news. Do let us know if you visit CES will get in touch with you to get more info, or share your comments below.
