Ubuntu llega a la telefonía, con una interfaz espléndidamente refinada y con una capacidad completa para PC cuando se acopla a ésta

Canonical anunció hoy una exclusiva interfaz para teléfonos inteligentes para su popular sistema operativo, Ubuntu, que utiliza los cuatro bordes de la pantalla para una experiencia de mayor inmersión. Ubuntu ofrece de manera excepcional a los OEM de teléfonos y a operadores móviles la posibilidad de concentrar teléfonos, las PC y clientes ligeros en un súper móvil de una sola empresa.

“Esperamos que Ubuntu sea popular en el mercado empresarial, permitiendo suministrar a los clientes un dispositivo único y seguro para todas las funciones de PC, de cliente ligero y de teléfono. Ubuntu es ya el Linux Enterprise Desktop más utilizado, con clientes en una amplia gama de sectores enfocados en la seguridad, los costos y la capacidad de gestión”, dijo Jane Silber, Directora Ejecutiva de Canonical. “También vemos una oportunidad en teléfonos inteligentes básicos que se utilizan para telefonía, SMS, web y correo electrónico, donde Ubuntu tiene un mejor rendimiento gracias a sus aplicaciones centrales nativas y a su elegante presentación.”

Ubuntu está dirigido a dos segmentos móviles primordiales: Los súper móviles de alta tecnología, y los teléfonos inteligentes de nivel básico, ayudando a los operadores a acrecentar el uso de datos de los consumidores que normalmente sólo utilizan el teléfono y la mensajería, pero que podrían abarcar el uso de la web y del correo electrónico en su teléfono. Ubuntu también es atractivo para los que aspiran a ser consumidores experimentados que quieren una experiencia fresca con un desempeño más rápido y sofisticado, en un dispositivo con un menor costo de materiales.

La interfaz de teléfono para Ubuntu introduce experiencias particulares para el usuario nuevo del mercado móvil, incluyendo:

1. Edge magic: gestos del pulgar en los cuatro bordes de la pantalla que permiten a los usuarios encontrar contenido y cambiar entre aplicaciones más rápido que otros teléfonos.

2. Inmersión profunda en contenido - los controles aparecen sólo cuando el usuario los necesita.

3. Una atractiva búsqueda global para aplicaciones, contenidos y productos

4. Comandos de voz y texto en cualquier aplicación para un acceso más rápido a capacidades sofisticadas

5. Aplicaciones nativas y de web o de HTML5

6. Gráficos personalizados cambiantes en la pantalla de bienvenida.

Ubuntu ofrece opciones convincentes de personalización para partner apps, contenidos y servicios. Los operadores y los fabricantes de equipos originales pueden agregar fácilmente ofertas de su propia marca. El servicio personal en la nube de Canonical, Ubuntu One, proporciona servicios de almacenamiento y de medios de comunicación, intercambio de archivos y un servicio de transacción segura que permite a los socios a integrar sus propias ofertas de servicios con facilidad.

Canonical facilita el desarrollo de teléfonos con Ubuntu. La compañía proporciona servicios de ingeniería para aliviar la complejidad de mantener múltiples bases de código que ha demostrado ser un problema común para los fabricantes de teléfonos inteligentes, liberando al fabricante para que se enfoque en el diseño del hardware y en la integración. Para los proveedores de silicio, Ubuntu es compatible con el paquete de apoyo para la tarjeta (BSP) típico de Android. Esto significa que Ubuntu está listo para ejecutarse en los diseños más económicos de chipsets.

Al llevar Ubuntu a los teléfonos, Canonical se posiciona de manera exclusiva con un sistema operativo único para el cliente, el servidor y la nube, y una familia unificada de interfaces para el teléfono, la PC y el televisor. “Estamos definiendo una nueva era de convergencia de la tecnología, con un sistema operativo unificado que da sustento a la computación en la nube, a los centros de datos, a las computadoras y a la electrónica de consumo”, dice Mark Shuttleworth, fundador de Ubuntu y Vicepresidente de Productos Canonical.

Canonical atiende actualmente a los fabricantes líderes de PCs: ASUS, Dell, HP y Lenovo, certifican la mayoría de sus PC con Ubuntu y lo preinstalan en los mercados globales. Más de 20 millones de PC de escritorio ejecutan hoy en día este SO, y Canonical estima que cerca del 10% de las nuevas computadoras portátiles y de escritorio en todo el mundo serán entregadas con Ubuntu en 2014. Ubuntu es también muy popular como una plataforma de servidor, el SO de servidores número uno en las principales nubes públicas y el principal SO de servidor para OpenStack, la IAAS de código abierto.

Comentarios textuales de apoyo

Peter Winston, Director Ejecutivo de Integrated Computer Solutions, Inc. (ICS):

“Casi todos los teléfonos modernos tienen una gran cantidad de componentes de código abierto, sólo era cuestión de tiempo para que alguien creara un teléfono de código abierto puro, sin ninguna restricción. Un verdadero reproductor de código abierto tiene la oportunidad de ser un actor importante en los mercados emergentes, así como con las personas que ya están comprometidos con el código abierto. Es realmente emocionante ver a Ubuntu entrar en el mercado de la telefonía.”

Mark Shuttleworth, fundador de Ubuntu y Vicepresidente de Productos de Canonical:

“Estamos forjando al futuro de la computación personal. Ubuntu se ha consolidado en las computadoras de escritorio, y tiene una posición única para estar en el centro de la próxima ola de productos electrónicos de consumo, combinando una hermosa interfaz táctil de una portátil con la experiencia completa de una PC cuando está acoplado a ésta.

Chris Kenyon, Vicepresidente de Ventas y Marketing de Canonical

“Ubuntu presenta una sola plataforma para todo tipo de computadoras personales y empresariales, una oportunidad única para simplificar las operaciones de la industria y de los usuarios finales por igual. Estamos encantados de ampliar nuestra oferta de servicios de la industria de PCs al sector móvil.”
