Ubuntu comes to Android for a full desktop experience

Canonical has finally brought Ubuntu to the mobile world, and not as a tiny mobile OS for use on a 4-inch display - no - for desktop use FROM that mobile device. What Ubuntu is doing here is sitting on an Android device (they used a Motorola Atrix 2 for testing purposes, ironically enough*) which reveals the software only when the device is plugged into a large display with its HDMI port.

We've already seen the handset boot up MeeGo, and now the developer is at it again. This time, though, we've got Ubuntu loading up on the device.
