Canonical developing Ubuntu OS for tablets

,----[ Quote ]
| Canonical is preparing a version of the 
| Ubuntu OS for tablet computers as the 
| company looks to extend its presence in the 
| mobile space, a company executive said.
| Tablets with the Ubuntu OS could become 
| available late in winter 2011, said Chris 
| Kenyon, Canonical's vice president of OEM 
| services. The OS will be a lightweight 
| version of Linux with a simplified, touch-
| friendly user interface.


Tablets take over Taipei

| Google, by making its Android software open 
| source and allowing anyone to develop 
| anything without all of the cloak-and-
| dagger secrecy and restrictions found in 
| the Apple camp, is bound to emerge as the 
| platform of choice sooner or later. Adding 
| to this momentum is the fact that Android 
| will be running on devices from multiple 
| manufacturers and carriers; and that around 
| 57% of Android's apps are free compared 
| with only 25% of Apple's, according to 
| analytics from Distimo, a website that 
| monitors app stores. In the world of 
| technology, the two essential ingredients 
| for product success seem to be choice and 
| the f-word - "free" - and Google offers 
| both.

Android Half-Tablets: Smart Phones with 5 Inch Displays

,----[ Quote ]
| A recently leaked image of a Sony Ericsson 
| Android smart phone is gaining plenty of 
| attention. The device is rumored to be a 
| new handset that will not only have the 
| Google open source operating system, but it 
| will be able to be used as a mini tablet 
| and also as a mini netbook.
| These are made possible by a few basic 
| features of the Android devices. The slide 
| out QWERTY keyboard is the first part, 
| while the large 5 inch display and the 
| tilting upper face of the device make up 
| for the whole ensemble. In many ways, there 
| is plenty to be excited about with regards 
| to the new Android device âif it turns out 
| to be true. For now, we can expect plenty 
| of focus on their new device.

Kno: Big, Dual-Screen Tablet Debuts at D8

| If you were bummed when Microsoft pulled the

| interested in the Kno, another dual-screen e-

| Digital's D8 conference yesterday.
