Your smartphone is your PC!

Well nearly..

You can now run a full version of Ubuntu on your Android phone;

While phones are clearly not yet as powerful as laptops, they are becoming powerful enough to run standard productivity applications and web browsers etc which accounts for the majority of non gaming PC / Mac use.

This clearly marks a leap forward in that direction as well, allowing you to run what is in reality a fully fledged O/S with full versions of Open Office etc.

Plug your phone into a TV or monitor, use a Bluetooth keyboard and you are all set with a mini PC..

Luckily enough I’m about at the end of my current contract so will be swapping to an HTC one X in the near future.  I’ll download and give this mobile Ubuntu version a try then report back.

The future with your PC in your pocket, literally, is almost here!
