Ubuntu recently released their own operating system for smart phone named Ubuntu Phone. The UI is quite unique and doesn’t have widgets and icons, but instead has windows and menus available at every edge of the display, just a swipe away. The controls and icons only appear when needed, keeping the look clean, minimal, and necessary.

Web applications will work as native apps on Ubuntu.
They get their own icons and the same access to system notifications. So apps like Facebook, Twitter, Google Maps, Gmail and Spotify are all available – and thanks to Ubuntu’s web app APIs, it’s easy for web developers to install their sites as full applications. Besides HTML application can be build for Ubuntu phone in C++. You can look at the video embedded below to know more about Ubuntu Phone. Some early ubuntu phone screenshots are in the gallery below as well.
