Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "The first computers were gigantic, filling rooms and requiring constant care and maintenance. [...] The computer stayed on the desk until the laptop computer, a smaller, more portable, but just as powerful machine, made it nearly obsolete. And then, the iPhone was released, followed shortly after by Android and the Palm WebOS, and the next step in computing was clear. What we did not immediately understand was if mobile computing was an accessory, or a replacement, for the traditional desktop machines." Jon-Buys at Ostatic believes the phone-becomes-computer paradigm is the next step.

Ubuntu phone & PC. Only time will tell

A few years ago Android was absolutely nothing and Google managed to create a product as good or better than iOS for phones.

Nothing will make me happier than having a phone that is both a great phone and a full PC at the same time.

Tablets are great gadgets but I just don't see them as the future of computing. Multitasking and multipurpose machines like the future Ubuntu phone PC make more sense to me; but then again, only time will tell.
