Ubuntu Phone

I was surprised and happy to know that Ubuntu was finally on a phone. Maybe these are old news for some but for me are freshly out of pressed, :). Before I lost my sight back in 2013, I had already heard rumors that Canonical was working on a project to bring Ubuntu to mobile devices. Just a few weeks back I discovered this long expected news.

Note: You can find Ubuntu in phones as well as tablets, which I will be talking about on a post later on.

Life at your fingertips

Ubuntu introduces a new way to enjoy content and services on smartphones, without relying on traditional apps.

Access content and services naturally

For the first time, you can use a phone that revolves around you and the content and services you use the most. Say goodbye to opening and switching between multiple apps and instead, let Ubuntu’s unique scopes bring everything you need to one screen.

Introducing scopes

Ubuntu’s scopes are like individual home screens for different kinds of content, giving you access to everything from movies and music to local services and social media, without having to go through individual apps.

A scope for every facet of life

NearBy

When you’re out and about, the NearBy scope can help you find where to eat, what bands to see and even which bus to catch.

Music

Listen to music from your library, stream from Soundcloud, download tracks from 7digital, or catch the latest gig with Songkick.

News

Get the latest news from from a range of different sources. Use the settings in this scope to create a tailored newspaper just for you.

Today

Head back home at any time to see your most important interactions on one screen. Personalize the Today scope so what’s important to you, is right at your fingertips.

Beautifully designed features

Ubuntu Phone has been designed with obsessive attention to detail. Form follows function throughout, from the ever-changing welcome screen to essentials like messaging and alarms. And the Launcher puts it all at your fingertips, whatever you’re doing with your phone.
