Ubuntu OS smartphones to hit stores in October

Ubuntu for mobile: a Linux OS fights to break into the smartphone market

                               The open-source Ubuntu OS is coming to a smartphone near you.

  • One of Linux's biggest players is heading to mobile. The new Ubuntu has a gesture heavy interface and will be entering the market amid a number of mature operating systems. We have reservations about how it will fair in the crowded mobile market but are interested to see how Canonical's open-source OS develops

  • It's been said that Ubuntu's open-source operating system would be available on smartphones by the end of the year, and now it's confirmed that consumers can get their hands on such devices in October.

  • Ubuntu is made by Canonical, and according to the Wall Street Journal, the founder and CEO of Canonical Mark Shuttleworth said that Ubuntu OS smartphones will be available in October and app developers will get access to the OS later this month. 
  • It's not yet clear which smartphones will run Ubuntu's OS, but app developers will be able to work with the OS on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus.

  • Ubuntu OS is long a favorite open-source platform for computing. And now, as it gets ready for a smaller screen, the OS will use the same drivers as Android smartphones and will also be able to run on entry-level smartphones.
  • Ubuntu for phones will use native apps, which means that developers can create a single app for both the desktop and the PC. This will let users easily move between devices. The OS also favors swiping gestures to reveal navigation strips and overview pages.
