Ubuntu Phone devices are becoming more and more useful. In the last few hours smartphones with Ubuntu Phonbe will receive the OTA-12, an update that we can consider minor and will only receive the official devices, however, this is not a problem for other phones to receive updates and versions of Ubuntu Phone.
The last thing to do is Fairphone 2, A smartphone that was born with Android but now we can install Ubuntu without any problems with the latest from Ubuntu Touch.
The architect of all this has been Marius Gripsgård, One of the developers of the UBPorts project, a project that tries to bring Ubuntu Phone to other unofficial mobiles. This project is bearing fruit and in the latest update it has been seen how FairPhone 2 already supports Aethercast technology or rather, it is already convergent. That’s why a video has been released where we can see how the developer connects his Fairphone 2 to a wireless monitor and other components, resulting in a computer with Ubuntu and the new Unity 8 desktop.
It is true that still Ubuntu Phone is not 100 percent ready on Fairphone 2 but with this sample of Convergence, we can say that it is already more functional than other mobile operating systems that show less Convergence such as Windows 10 Mobile or your Lumia 950. In any case, these results meet the established dates, ie I expected Fairphone 2 to have more development during these days, which makes you think that it’s easy to work with Ubuntu Phone, At least for developers struggling with hardware or cooking new rums for mobiles.
Unfortunately for all this I see a problem: no one has a wireless monitor or it is not easy to get it and therefore it is difficult for a normal user to make use of this convergence, either with the Fairphone 2 or with any other device. Possibly the solution goes through a dock or adapter although people will not see it very well What do you think?
