It seems Google has chosen android to eventually create a device you could plug in to a monitor to use like you would a desktop PC.
A step, but surely Ubuntu will beat them to the punch?
The winner is who gets there first and lets most amount of consumers know what it does for them.
Finally a use for all that power, if only we had a word processor...
Can't believe Ubuntu Edge wasn't created, Sony should buy them...

It would be a great move forward if Google manages to pull it off just right,
And about the Ubuntu Edge, It was a great product with a lot of hype generated; but after some time, people lost interest in it and some probably forgot. They could have managed the high goal they set in the right amount of time if they released the details about the device slow enough, which would have kept the hype alive among the public till the end of its funding day.
And as you said about sony buying them, I would prefer to keep my bet onto Fujitsu. Fujitsu technologies, Japan, Have been known to produce some of the best hardware and can make the best out of Ubuntu mobile OS. Just look at the work of Fujitsu once, Oppo's N1 rotating camera, first ever fingerprint sensor embedded into screen itself, batteries that charge in 10 mins and last a day. It's such a pity they don't launch their products outside Japan, otherwise, we would see some of the best tech ever developed for mobiles.
