I was talking with a good friend of mine in regards to Ubuntu Unity and the problems we both have. (I posted earlier about my thoughts on Alpha2 earlier.) We have both come to the conclusion the focus of Unity is really for mobile devices and not netbooks. With the recent announcement that Ubuntu One is now available on iPhones (not Windows for some silly reason) it only strengthens these thoughts. This must be were Mark views the ability to make money.
Ubuntu has focused on making Ubuntu the goto Linux for the cloud, is the next market mobile? The focus is definitely not on winning the enterprise, but thats a post for later.
Think about, Unity is built and optimized for touch devices, mobile devices. With the icons on the left launching different applications, including your phone and the app store, I mean the Ubuntu Software Center, providing you with almost unlimited applications you would quickly rival and maybe better Apple, and definitely Android. But why would I want to load Ubuntu on my mobile device instead of Android? And as an OEM why would I want to develop a device around Ubuntu instead of Android which is focused and built around mobile?
Am I off here on wondering why the focus appears to be on mobile?
