Android 5.0, the new version of Google‘s mobile operating system, is yet to come on the market and already promises sparks. In addition to the items they want Android Jelly Bean with the dual boot feature, now you also talk about a new feature that lets you use your smartphone as a trackpad on a desktop or laptop. Perhaps we are dealing with an early version of Android as the operating system to itself for laptop and desktop computers?
This is a novelty that, if developed and completed successfully, would allow uniting the world in a very strong smartphone and desktop world, having a single operating system, regardless of the device in use.
A small step towards some sort of integration between desktop and smartphone we’ve seen with Ubuntu for Android, software with which we can install a version of Ubuntu on a phone powered by Android. This news was revealed for the first time only last week and we particularly we reported in preview, but the date of arrival to the general public is not expected before the middle of this year.
Potential that would allow us to have Google Android desktop version? Surely the integration of smartphones (which are basically small computers), and desktop or laptop allows us, at work, for example, to have a unique environment in which to operate, which goes to the benefit of productivity. But there is also the question Chrome OS to figure out, since Google is also developing this operating system completely Cloud.
To be able to know more, however, we must await the conference Google I / O, planned for summer 2012. Until then we can make some interesting assumptions and think about what you’d get from a hypothetical desktop version of Android.
