YouTube Preview Image

From reading the comments in our last post, it looks like there is a ton of excitement for the Ubuntu for Android announcement that will take place at this year’s MWC. This full video demo should give everyone a great look into how it will work and what to expect. Enjoy!

Cheers Tom!

    This is really awesome. I’m never a big fan of turning my phone into a replacement for something that it shouldn’t be, but the gap is slowly closing.

    My list of hopes.
    1. Ability to sync everything to your tablet. I’m talking contacts, missed calls, full texts, etc.. Basically, you can open up your tablet and have the exact same setup there. It would be kind of like what Chrome for Android is doing across the desktop.
    2. The ability to send texts from your tablet through your mobile device # and calls as well if we are going to get real fancy. Basically, you could send an “data call” from the tablet to the phone then use the Network to complete the call.
    3. Get developers to make REAL apps for the Ubuntu portion, I’m not sure if it would be voodoo in the Ubuntu community for people to buy an Ubuntu app but I would pay for Microsoft Office on Ubuntu or a really strong photo editor, etc…
    4. Dual boot/parallel on your desktop.. Sync’ed like the tablet.

    It would be awesome in 2 years to have a 13-15″ tablet with a Transformer Keyboard dock that was capable of producing documents at the efficiency level that you can on a Windows/Mac computer currently. Or you could have a 24″ All-in-One with a keyboad, mouse, rediculous processing power, all capable of running Photoshop, Office, etc.. on an Android based system, where when you logged in the computer recognizes your cell number and syncs all the current info off your phone.

    The video was probably removed b/c when the guy was showing his contacts he forgot to block the names and phone numbers.

      Search youtube and you’ll find a few re-uploaded copies of this.

    Too bad the video disappeared.  I was trying to watch it from my phone yesterday with no luck.  Now on this XP machine it is listed as removed by the user.

    I’ll go one better than the interface that is surmised here.  In the not too distant future when you get to your home in the evening (and in some cases when you get to work in the morning) your keyboard and monitor will “know” you are home and your phone/computer will sync seamlessly to your keyboard and monitor.
