Ubuntu Phone Convergence Video – MWC 2016


Check out this seriously cool Ubuntu Phone convergence video taken at the MWC 2016.

In the demo, John Lee from Canonical shows how a smartphone running Ubuntu Phone, effortlessly turns into a desktop computer when connected up to a monitor. Although you can pair up a Bluetooth keyboard and a mouse to the phone, you can also use the phone as a trackpad and use the phone's in-screen keyboard to input data if no other peripherals are handy.
