Ubuntu Mobile For MIDs Announced
We knew it was coming, but today Canonical has officially announced Ubuntu Mobile. Unlike some of the Ubuntu derivatives that are the same as Ubuntu but a swapped out desktop environment, Ubuntu Mobile is completely re-engineered for use on MIDs (Mobile Internet Devices) with plenty of features to distinguish it from the desktop Ubuntu distribution. Ubuntu Mobile continues to be fully open-source, but is capable of including licensed codecs, full Web 2.0/AJAX fidelity, enhanced media playback, a suite of mobile applications, and integration with popular Web 2.0 applications. Ubuntu Mobile is also touch-screen friendly, utilize various Internet connection technologies such as WiMax, and offer a highly-customizable user interface. More information is available from the Ubuntu Mobile webpage. From the screenshots and information provided thus far, Ubuntu Mobile is looking quite impressive for a Linux MID distribution.
