Akan Hadir Smartphone Dan Komputer Tablet Ubuntu

  Artikel, Berita TI, Mobile   2 November 2011

Sebelumnya saya akan mengutip artikel dari Ars Technica sebagai berikut:

“The Ubuntu Developer Summit, an biannual event at which members of the Ubuntu development community gather to lay out a roadmap for the next version of the Linux distribution, will take place next week in Florida. As usual, Ubuntu founder Mark Shuttleworth will start the event with a keynote.

According to an early report from ZDNet, Shuttleworth will announce plans to bring Ubuntu to smartphones and tablet computing devices. The company says that it has been discussing the plan with hardware partners for the past 18 months. No specific hardware vendors have been named yet and there is presently no concrete timeline for product availability.

Canonical’s focus for the first half of 2012 will be stabilization and improving the platform for the enterprise desktop. As we previously reported, Ubuntu 12.04—scheduled for release in April—will offer an extended long-term support period for business users. After the 12.04 release, the focus will reportedly shift towards mobile.

Ubuntu’s new Unity shell will play a key role in Canonical’s plans to bring the Ubuntu user experience to smaller screens. The platform already has preliminary tablet support, including experimental functionality for touchscreen-based window management. It seems likely that the Qt-based Unity 2D experience will serve as the mobile implementation. The Qt Quick user interface design framework is well-suited for building touch-friendly mobile experiences.

Although few details about the Ubuntu mobile platform are available now, more information will likely surface on Monday during Shuttleworth’s talk at the Ubuntu Developer Summit.”

Menurut sebuah laporan dari ZDNet, Mark Shuttleworth founding father-nya Ubuntu mengungkapkan rencananya untuk membawa Ubuntu untuk hadir di smartphone dan tablet. Canonical mengatakan bahwa mereka sudah mendiskusikan rencana dengan rekanan penyedia hardware selama 18 bulan terakhir ini. Belum ada hardware vendor spesifik yang disebutkan dan belum ada waktu yang jelas mengenai ketersediaan produk mereka ini.

Canonical akan membuat Ubuntu versi 12.04 di tahun depan dengan versi LTE (long term support) yang ditujukan untuk komputer. Setelah itu mereka akan berfokus ke perangkat mobile.

Desktop environment Unity berperanan penting di rencana Canonical untuk membawa Ubuntu ke layar yang lebih kecil. Meski beberapa detail mengenai mobile platform Ubuntu sudah ada, namun informasi yang lebih banyak akan muncul saat Shuttlework membawakan presentasi di Ubuntu Developer Summit yang akan berlangsung di Florida.

Perlu diketahui bahwa untuk pasar mobile OS saat ini sudah terdapat Android, Symbian, MeeGo, iOS, Blackberry OS, Windows Phone. Terdapat pemain besar seperti Android dan iOS,  akankah nantinya Ubuntu dapat memperoleh pasar di pangsa platform perangkat bergerak? Tunggu saja cerita selanjutnya dari Shuttleworth setelah Ubuntu versi 12.04 (LTE) diluncurkan.
