Ubuntu For Android
February 24, 2012
This is like a dream gadget for me.
Android phone with an Ubuntu Add-on that also has a TV interface ? Are you kidding me ?
The beauty of this is that not 0nly can you see you media content on a big screen TV or LCS screen, but you can also run the Android applications in an Ubuntu environment.
For example, you can use the Wifi radio of your phone to detect Wifi networks and connect to them using the familiar Ubuntu Network Manager.
Or get notified of an SMS on Ubuntu’s desktop notification service.
Enough said, check out the video
I have two questions that were unanswered in the video above :
- Will this work on any smart Android phone ?
- How much does the dock cost ?
I just can’t wait to get my hands on this.
