Remember when the Motorola Atrix came out and it had that nifty dock feature that turned your phone into a computer when plugged into a docking station or the laptop dock accessory? It never really took off because, let's face it, it was laggy and middling desktop experience at best.
But what if that functionality came to every Android phone (not just certain ones) and it ran a nearly full version of a light, efficient desktop OS (like Ubuntu) and utilized all of the processing power of your monster Android phone (Nexus 4, Galaxy S3, HTC One X+). Would it have your attention?
Well January 2nd just may be a very special day for you then.
Canonical has announced that they will be releasing a "Brand New Ubuntu Product" the day after New Years, and educated speculation says it will be Ubuntu for Android.
Don't expect it to be a full version, but probably just a halfway point before all of the bugs are worked out, but imagine being able to plug your phone into a docking station or hooking it up to a TV or Monitor and using a full version of a desktop OS that is actually functional.
Ubuntu is a wonderful OS experience, so if the team can pull this off, then they may have something really special on their hands, and they may just revolutionize the way we use our phones for good.
