long ago announced its intention to market Ubuntu for Android , a system that would run an operating system Ubuntu via a smartphone based on Android. So far no announcements to clarify what terminals would come to market with this capability, but there is a separate project that wants to do just that. Your name: NexPhone .
The project is trying to achieve economic support users by launching a fundraising campaign on IndieGoGo (a service similar to Kickstarter), and as indicated in the project page :
“NexPhone be a single device that can be used at home, in the office, or on the street without having to synchronize content with other devices or contacts.”
The idea is precisely that Canonical had for months. When connecting NexPhone a monitor and keyboard with a docking station specifically this phone will become a complete workplace based on Ubuntu for Android , and it can run all kinds of office applications and entertainment.
The idea goes further by offering Bought to NexPhone. First would be to connect the call NexTablet to extend the versatility of the device and its power when playing multimedia or surfing the Internet, ASUS PadPhone style. Second, the connection to NexLaptop , which integrate a keyboard and trackpad. By suparte, NexMonitor a job offer with a keyboard with numeric keypad and mouse multitouch.
NexCrea, the company behind the project, says it is in contact with both partners and manufacturers in China with Canonical for software implementation. For now has raised only $ 2,877 of the 950,000 they need to put the project in motion, a figure that they want to go before 14 November.
achieve the necessary funds, the NexPhone your NexDock be available for $ 449 . The NexTablet cost $ 149, $ 199 and NexTablet NexMonitor $ 199. We’ll see if the stakeholders are committed to this project financially, because if so we would never closer than the availability of a hardware solution designed specifically for this purpose.
