Canonical releases information on Ubuntu for mobile devices
Posted on 8-Jun-2007 23:56 | Tags Filed under: News



Canonical Ltd. has announced more details on Ubuntu Mobile and Embedded Edition. The company is the commercial sponsor of Ubuntu, a Linux distribution.

Ubuntu Mobile and Embedded Edition will provide a rich Internet experience for users of Intel’s 2008 Mobile Internet Device (MID) platform. To achieve this, Ubuntu Mobile and Embedded will run video, sound and offer browsing experiences to the MID target user. Optimized for MIDs based on Intel's low power processors and chipsets, Ubuntu Mobile and Embedded edition is expected to deliver fast boot and resume times, and reside in a small memory and disk footprint.

The first full release of the software will be available in October 2007 corresponding with the normal release cycle of the Ubuntu operating system. Working collaboratively with Intel, Canonical is working to deliver software on actual devices from system manufacturers in 2008.

“The emerging Mobile Internet Device category represents significant growth opportunity for Intel and the industry. The demand for Linux on these devices is increasing.” said Doug Fisher, Intel Vice President and General Manager, System Software Division. “We look forward to collaborating with Canonical, supporting them to optimize Ubuntu for MIDs based on Intel low power technologies, and working with our customers to bring these devices to market.”
