Ubuntu comes to Smartphones

One of the most popular Linux desktop operating system distributives has been adapted for smartphones. Very soon we will see a new powerful force at the mobile market in the form of Ubuntu Mobile created by Canonical which will “perform well even on less powerful gadgets”.

In terms of architecture Ubuntu operating system reminds of Android OS. At the heart of Ubuntu Mobile is Linux kernel, but virtual machine Dalvik won’t be used. Apart from that, Canonical assures smartphones manufacturers that the system will be able to cooperate well with the existing kernels and drivers for popular systems-on-crystal, which are used in Android devices. It will help to get rid of long work on the special adaptation of a new operating system for specific processors.
Ubuntu Mobile actively uses sweeping gesture in the interface, the same gestures helps you to navigate through the system. But the developers have to admit that the platform’s weak point will be ecosystem. At the beginning the OS will be supplied with only 5 standard applications, including Facebook, Google Maps, Gmail and Spotify. The most difficult task at the initial stage will be to convince users to prefer new Ubuntu Mobile to more popular and well-known OSes like iOS, Android, or Windows Phone.

Canonical has made the main emphasis on HTML5 programs which are very easy to transfer from other platforms. And these applications can cooperate with system services of a device via special API. But Ubuntu is not limited with HTML5. For more complex applications and games that actively use smartphone’s resources Ubuntu offers the possibility of C/C++ development and full-fledged use of OpenGL. The company also points out that Ubuntu on a smartphone and on a PC isactually the same, so the app written in its own code can work on both versions of operating system with different interfaces.

Minimal system requirements for mobile Ubuntu are single-core Cortex A9 1GHz processor, 512 Mb of RAM, 4-8 Gb of built-in memory. If you connect your smartphone to a monitor your mobile device can turn into a desktop system. But the requirements for such devices are higher: quad-core Cortex A9 or Intel Atom processor, more than 1 Gb of RAM, 32 Gb of flash memory and SD cards support. The release of the first communicator that runs under Ubuntu is expected to be at the beginning of 2014. According to the announcement on the official site, the operating system will be ready for release at the end of the current year.

LG Optimus L9 Comes with 5 MP Camera

After the launch of some high-end devices, LG is again the Talk of the Town with its new budget device of the L series the LG Optimus L9. We obviously are not gonna compare the device with the company's Optimus G, as that would be very much unfair for the newbie. As you can infer from the LG Optimus L9 pictures, it is very much similar to the L7 with its chrome trim and black, Gorilla Glass coated face. It runs into a measurement of 131.9 x 68.2 x 9.1 mm and weighs just about 125 grams making it comfortable enough to hold. The back cover comes with a textured matte surface giving it a premium look and it is better than the L7's striped backing.

It has a removable cover revealing the battery, SIM card and a microSD card slot, which again gives it a drawback of not providing Hot-Swap option and every time you need to get to the memory card, you'll have to take the battery out. The device sports a 4.5-inch qHD TFT LCD display with a resolution of 960 x 540 pixels, which again shows an improvement over the L7's 4.3-inch, 800 x 480 resolution display. Under the sunlight, Optimus L9 is quit legible only if you adjust the brightness to 100%. It does not come with an auto- brightness setting, so every time the lighting conditions change you will have to adjust the phone's brightness.

Though the Optimus L9's 1 GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4430 processor is not as amazing as the dual- core Snapdragon S4 processor, it certainly is pretty good. The device is powered by a 2,150mAh battery and no official data has been provided about its average standby time. LG Optimus L9 features a 5 megapixel rear snapper with LED flash, auto focus, geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection and a fun feature called 'Voice shutter' where all you need to say is cheese and the camera will click the photo itself. It is also equipped with a front facing VGA camera, facilitating video calls.

The LG Optimus L9 runs on Android 4.0 version Ice Cream Sandwich software in-spite of the latest Jelly Bean version. LG Optimus L9 price varies with different online retailers, but at the max. it can be bought at a sum of Rs. 23,000. Though its performance won't blow you away, it's good enough for everyday tasks and with some fun features, that are pretty amazing for a device of this range.
