New project aims to bridge the gap between phones and PCs.


Yesterday Ubuntu teased a countdown on their site, stating that something was “So close, you can almost touch it”.

Now the curtains have lifted on Ubuntu’s most exciting project yet, Ubuntu for phones. The project aims to give users a smartphone that also doubles as a full-fledged PC, complete with apps and tools that users are familiar with. The interface is very touch-driven, with left and right swipes being used to access apps and bottom swipes being used to bring up menus. In a keynote posted today, Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth explained Ubuntu’s mobile strategy and how smartphones will be evolving in the future to bridge the gap between the phone and PC.
