Phone lovers will now enjoy a new taste in using their mobiles as Ubuntu powered smartphones will be shipped beginning this October. Soon the users will be having Ubuntu Phone OS device.
A report out by the Wall Street Journal is entitled “Ubuntu Smartphone Shipping in October.” The posting by Michael Hickins, the WSJ CIO Editor, cites comments made by Mark Shuttleworth as for the first appearance of smartphones running Ubuntu in October.
However, we didn’t have a clear idea at the time of when we would see the Ubuntu-powered smartphones hit the market. Fortunately, Canonical CEO Mark Shuttleworth has outlined a definite launch window for the handsets.
One of the main features of Ubuntu for phones are its gestures, which allow a user to do things like access content and switch between apps by swiping to the different edges of the handset’s display. Shuttleworth also pointed out that the phones can be docked to bigger displays, connected wirelessly to keyboards and have Windows apps streamed to them from servers.
An operating prototype of the model will be disclosed by the end of this month and up to now most Ubuntu Phone developers have been using the Google Nexus from Samsung as a prototype device.
According to Shuttlesworth, users will be able to run other operating systems on the device, including Windows, Androi and iOS
