    It is and it's showing how desperate Canonical is to get their shitty technology out there. It's not like Anbox lit the world on fire or anything.

    Sounds interesting, and I’d be interested in trying it! One immediate use for this I can think of is being able to overlay the virtualized phone interface or just outright apps in VR; this would be perfect for a Quest 2 headset. The current methods for doing anything with phone integration in VR aren’t great.

    Plus I have a good feeling this will be significantly faster than most lagdroids on the market. These devices would benefit highly from having processing done on the cloud.

    ...of this "clod smartphone" effort (sic).

    Sounds about right.

    This seems like such an absolutely horrible idea. A phone is a portable device. Streaming is best on a fast, wired connection.

    Why the hell did Canonical agree to this.

    If all apps will be on the cloud and seen via video decoding then this will be a weird device. and require loads of bandwidth.
