The hundreds of video docks that they make. That would probably do it.....

Carrier restrictions are part of what make android suck compared to linux.

This would be awesome if it was not subject to that

Unity would make for a better mobile UI than Gnome/KDE/XFCE/etc., IMO. Ubuntu ports already exist for some phones, and some work fairly well -- but this could make things pretty interesting in the mobile space.

I'd choose Gnome 3 over Unity for a Mobile UI. But maybe that's just me. Both suck for Desktop use either way rolleyes.gif

Gnome 3 with autohide topbar is just freaking amazing on any computer, including the ones with big monitors and small ones like ultraportabel laptops. Try it for 1 week and you wont go back to any other DE.

Tried it for nearly a month right before it moved out of testing. Also used Gnome Shell plenty. Currently I can't stand DE's or floating WM's. Except XFCE, which I still seldom use. I use mostly DWM and XMonad.

I liked Gnome 3 when I tried it on Arch a few months back, and Unity doesn't seem to be too terrible as I recall. that'll probably upset a bunch of Linux "purists", but for the longest time all I could stomach on any Linux distro was Gnome2. Sometimes, change isn't too bad.

Wahoo! I'm keepin' a close eye on XDA-Developers for this...

Is it true that it won't be open source?
