Ubuntu Phones in Mobile World Congress

Filed under
Ubuntu
  • The most powerful Ubuntu phone is still not good enough

    If there's one thing tech enthusiasts love more than an underdog, it's an underdog with high specs. The Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition is just such a device. It's powered by the same 14nm Samsung Exynos processor as the flagship Galaxy S6. It has a 21-megapixel camera with laser-assisted phase-detect autofocus and a Hi-Fi DAC from ESS. Clad in an aluminum unibody shell and sporting an AMOLED display, it's as modern and good looking as any smartphone out here at Mobile World Congress. But it runs Ubuntu, and that makes it too much of an underdog.

  • Mobile World Congress starts today in Barcelona

    "We've seen a lot of activity on the Ubuntu front in anticipation of the Mobile World Congress 2016, and now it's finally starting. There is a lot of exciting news going to be shared with the community in the coming days, and the company wanted to make an impression", said a Softpedia statement. Many of the Ubuntu developers and members of Canonical have said that the new Expo is really impressive, and it's easy to see why that's the case from the pictures that have been shared until now. The company also shared its schedule and demos for the entire duration of the congress. "Ubuntu at Mobile World Congress 2016" The Mobile World Congress 2016 is one of the biggest events of the year, so Canonical couldn't miss the opportunity of promoting its products, especially the mobile devices and the Ubuntu operating system. The demos will cover pretty much everything that's done by Canonical, including OpenStack, LXD, Ubuntu Core on switches, cloud benchmarking, robots and drones, home gateways, industrial IOT, and much more.

GNOME Development Outline and Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2022

  • #45 Timeout! · This Week in GNOME

    Update on what happened across the GNOME project in the week from May 20 to May 27.

  • Selected for GSoC'22

    I'm pleased to share that I'm accepted for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2022 under GNOME Foundation umbrella on the Pitivi project. This summer I will be updating the project from GTK3 to the latest GTK4 toolkit. To anyone that wants to be a part of GSoC, I have only one piece of advice, just go for it. Don't think if you can do it or not, don't assume failure before attempting, and don't overthink. I always felt that it is for the best of the best, and I won't be able to clear it, all the big organizations on the GSoC page overwhelmed me, but instead of making it a dream, I made it a life goal. And well, now I'm enjoying it.
