Ubuntu for Android was one of the more eye-catching concepts being showcased at MWC, as it essentially allows users to carry their desktop around on their smartphone.
The operating system was preloaded onto a Motorola Atrix 2, which has a 1GHz dual-core processor, HDMI connectivity and enough memory to cope with Ubuntu's 2GB footprint.
When using the device in your hand it runs on Android Gingerbread, but as soon as it is plugged into a larger display via a HDMI dock, the Ubuntu desktop starts up, giving you access to your desktop.
The Linux kernel runs Android and Ubuntu at the same time, so you can use all the features of Android such as calling and apps while it is docked.
Ubuntu is in talks with manufacturers to have the software preloaded on Android handset as it requires deep integration.
Talks have been positive so far, and V3 was told handsets could ship later this year. It will also be compatible with the Ice Cream Sandwich platform.
