    Default External Display Required for UBUNTU?

    For Ubuntu for Android to work or be "activated," their website and all the descriptions I have read involve using the HDMI or other external video interface, or a dock.

    With "phones," or pocket pc's or multi-function devices as we should rename them... the screen resolution is getting to HD quality with more and more phones...

    If I carry a BT keyboard & mouse... I would hope I could just manually "activate" the Ubuntu interface. Does anyone else see this as an important feature to include?

    To be honest I would be just giddy if I could pair my Ubuntu ready Android handset with my Asus Transformer and dock and use it......but then that's just dreaming lol.

    I wish there was a "Downvote for ignorance" option... You've apparently forgotten about tablets, some of which have larger screens than ultrabooks and netbooks.

    Ubuntu for Android would be amazing on something like the Transformer

    Tablets could definitely work, from a visual standpoint. On an HD phone display? Don't even wanna think about it.
