Ubuntu for Android is an innovative project that seems to be the next logical step for mobile devices. I always wondered how it worked and now I had access to a video made last week during the International Free Software Forum (FISL) in Porto Alegre. The demo was done on a Motorola Atrix 2 and has some very interesting features, check it out!
When the phone is docked, it goes to the monitor as a normal Ubuntu instance, complete with the Unity interface, in this case customized to use online applications. From the launcher, everything indicates that we can pin the phone apps, but the dialer is automatically there, as an option to run Android from your phone in a window on the screen. There is full access to the camera as well.
As for Ubuntu, everything seems to work fine. It takes about 10 seconds to restart the system you were in if you need to unplug the phone and put it back in. In addition, the demo shows Libre Office running very well, as well as a terminal window open all the time.
