Many of you may or may not have heard of Ubuntu but lets just call it a very fast, useful operating system option if you’re fed up with Windows and do not want to spend a fortune on a Mac.  So what we have here now is a version of that very same Ubuntu but for your Android device!  The company, Canonical, has released a video walk-through of the software in action and claims a MWC official announcement.  Continue below to read more about this revolutionary software and the video walk-through! So how exactly are you going to run this on your phone? ROM? Virtual-machine? None of the above.  The process will run Ubuntu and Android right along side each other on the same kernel.  After everything is set up (Ubuntu installed), the phone will run normally but when it  connected to a dock/monitor/peripheral device, the Ubuntu UI will pop-up.  The whole reason for all this is so everything a user will use/want is in one place.  And no, not like the cloud.  Now users can have their data on a piece of hardware and replaces the need for multiple devices – i.e. phone, tablet, and computer.

So is anyone else out there overly excited for this announcement? We will make sure it is overly covered when officially announced at MWC!
