Ubuntu is an extremely popular Linux distribution that has found its way onto desktops and laptops everywhere. Canonical has announced on the official website that it will show off a new version of Ubuntu targeted at mobile platforms, such as smartphones, at the upcoming CES show. Ubuntu will bring with it several applications that work with the OS and simply need to be ported to work on smartphone platforms. Your phone will also be able to function as a standalone PC when connected to a docking station. Developer tools will be available to help create more applications using native or HTML5 apps.
