Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Take this as a sign of things to come in the land of convergence. Yesterday, Ubuntu announced Ubuntu for Android. This new product basically allows you to run the entire Ubuntu Linux distribution on your Android smartphone connected to an external display and keyboard and mouse.

If they manage to work a way not to require any physical docking device (use only barebone micro-HDMI for display, and wireless mouse+keyboard) than I'll go for that!

Obviously it's a prototype solution targeting the future - but... we should have 4-core CPUs + powerful GPUs in mobile phones some time in the near future, so it all should work really smooth!

Wireless HDMI would be cool. I'm not a fan of having cables around, and a few more of them hanging from the back of the TV doesn't really appeal me that much.
