Go mobile !

Imagine Ubuntu running on your Internet-enabled mobile device… How cool is that !?

To make this dream a reality, Ubuntu plans to extend their software development to handheld Internet-enabled devices in partnership with Intel, thereby enabling us to change the way we communicate and collaborate.

Targeting an initial release with the next version of Ubuntu in October 2007, the Ubuntu Mobile and Embedded project will target “mobile Internet devices” (MIDs), along the lines of Nokia's N800 web tablet. This was announced recently on the developer's mailing list by Matt Zimmermann, CTO of Ubuntu.

Since these devices place new demands on open source software and require innovative graphical interfaces, improved power management and better responsiveness, Ubuntu developers are brainstorming on ideas at the ongoing developer summit at Sevilla (Spain).
