The rumour mill is cranking into overdrive as to what form Canonical’s ‘Ubuntu Concept Design’ CES reveal will take.
But there may be a clue what it might be by looking at Canonical’s diary for the following month.
The congress plays home to both an exhibit and a conference consisting of some of the worlds leading players in mobile technologies. From the chief executives of device manufacturers to the app houses keeping mobile platforms useful – anyone with a vested interested in the mobile sector is there.
Canonical will be pitching up their exhibit in Hall 7 of the event building. Hall 7 plays home to the ‘App Planet’ exhibit which is described by the organisers as:
“A forward-looking app-focused exhibition showcasing the framework that shapes, enables and drives the app industry. Visit the Upper Village where we showcase more than 200 app-specific exhibitors…”
Hold your horses
Canonical have already stated plans for a multi-platform future for Ubuntu, so their attendance at MWC 2012 isn’t entirely shocking.
Whether or not it’s indicative of a shiny concept Unity phone being unveiled next week is nothing more than mere conjecture/supposition/reading into what’s probably not there on my part.
But the connection is something to mull over in the mean time.
