Ubuntu on a tablet and PC monitor

Ubuntu offers an intuitive touch interface and all the power of a PC when in desktop mode.

  • Mobile turns into a full PC when connected to a wireless mouse and keyboard
  • Run two apps side by side for true on-screen multi-tasking when in mobile mode
  • Ubuntu’s unique scopes make content and services easier to access

Convergence that just clicks

With Ubuntu’s convergence features, you can now get a full PC experience on your Ubuntu mobile device; create and access documents, spreadsheets and presentations with LibreOffice, the Microsoft-compatible productivity suite.

Simply connect a mouse and keyboard wirelessly to your mobile device when it’s time to get something done, whether it’s serious work or serious gaming. And to enjoy your content on an even grander scale, you can connect to a monitor or TV. It’s the best of both worlds: portability and big-screen productivity.
