Forget post-PC. Canonical’s Mark Shuttleworth envisions a future where the smartphone is the brain of your tablet as well as your laptop and even your TV set, all connected to the cloud. Specifically, Shuttleworth believes that the smartphone of the future will be the single device at the center of the end-user’s universe. In summary, it will act as a “brain” for the tablet, laptop, and even TV sets, which will simply be just modular display and peripheral extensions of the handheld device. In the future, according to the video, smartphones will contain the CPU, storage, and wireless connectivity “core” of the user experience, running on a unified mobile operating system — in this case, Ubuntu running on the ARM architecture.
