Currently, the Linux based OS Ubuntu is the most ever successful Linux distribution and it is also regarded as one of the most consumer-friendly versions of an alternative operating system to the Windows on the Personal Computers.

But, The Ubuntu Inc.’s approach to the current mobile market is quite unique and smart too. Ubuntu has got some plans to build some smart phones, which are powerful enough to double as the desktop replacements.

Then, connect an Ubuntu phone to any monitor, a keyboard, and a mouse, and as soon as it can transform into a whole full-featured desktop running on the Ubuntu OS.
