Just over a week ago Canonical unveiled their new Ubuntu for Android, and said that even though they would not be revealing a full product they would be showcasing it at MWC 2012.
As promised at Mobile World Congress 2012 Canonical have been busy demonstrating their new software running on a Motorola Atrix 2 smartphone. Watch the video after the jump to see the Ubuntu for Android demonstrated on Motorola’s Atrix 2 smartphone.
To recap the new Ubuntu for Android software enables users to benefit from both Android and the Ubuntu operating system when its docked and connected to a monitor, keyboard and mouse.
Once docked and in Ubuntu mode the Motorola’s Atrix 2 smartphone basically becomes a fully working Linux computer workstation, even when demonstrated on a mid range Atrix 2. Which isn’t the fastest Android smartphone on the market.
Another great feature of the Ubuntu for Android software is that when you connect it to a television via HDMI. You will not get the Ubuntu desktop, but a version of Ubuntu’s TV interface. As more information becomes available for Ubuntu for Android we will keep you posted.
