Fix the Desktop Interface (Unity) first.
Coming Soon: Ubuntu For Mobiles, TabletsIf you are an Ubuntu fan, you will love this one. You will now be able to enjoy your favourite Linux-based operating system (OS) on your mobile handsets and tablet devices as well.
According to a ZDNet report, this free and open source operating system is all set to challenge Google's Android OS. The report is based on a revelation made by Canonical's founder Mark Shuttleworth. He revealed that the company will focus on its longer-term goal of expanding to all computing platforms, including mobile phones, tablet devices and also smart TVs. But all this will be done after the company has finalised the latest version of desktop computers.
This is great
I think it should create a separate segment rather then challenge Android which I dont think is very smart.
as if we did not see that coming,
and as lfc said, many things are broken in the current unity, including some issues with opera not rendering properly when used with compositing.
Aren't both iOS and android both based on linux? What is this the stock bare bone version?
P.S. I have online used ubuntu for an hour at most
I did not think I would hate Unity so much. But I suppose trying to clone the Mac look got into the devs head. Gnome was so much better. Wish they don't use Unity in the mobile version.
be what you are
and say what you feel
bcoz those who mind, don't matter
and those who matter, don't mind !!

They only need to fix those usability issues, and they're done.
I wish Gnome 3 was used by Ubuntu, potentially it's an enviroment perfectly suited for tablets.
Sounds really good.
Open source ftw!!

So the days for symbian, iOS and all that pricey things are numbered......
There are still good thing remain in world like free software.......
Android will live, and it is there to live long (at least for next 10-20 years)

Correct me if I'm wrong but is android the most power hungry mobile OS?
Also I think this was featured in Digit mag where cell phones in the future (supposedly) will be sold blank without any OS and the user can add any OS he wants later on.
I hope this is the first step towards it
Lets hope that assumption come true(mobile come with out OS)

Mobile without OS? Do I want to dual boot my phone?
Well that is stuff of fancy so far. Hardware locked OSes make it tough.
Its already there for xperia x10 long ago
