Canonical delivers Ubuntu Touch for tablets

Ubuntu tablet

The countdown timer on the Ubuntu website has ended, and Canonical has made Ubuntu for tablets official. With the tablet version, Ubuntu now scales across just about every screen and device you could imagine, from your smartphone all the way up to your television — each with their own unique UI additions to make for a simple, yet elegant solution for your computing needs.

The new tablet design is built on the very same Ubuntu core as the rest of the product line, with an emphasis on productivity and security. The new side stage multi-tasking allows for phone and tablet apps on the screen at the same time, and full encryption and secure multi-user logins are an integral part of the operating system. When added to Ubuntu's unique heads-up display, voice activated control and gesture based navigation, Ubuntu on your tablet might be the cleanest design you've ever seen.

Ubuntu on a tablet is something many of us have been wanting. With today's hardware, a full Linux distribution on a 7 or 10 inch screen is more than feasible, and it looks like we're going to get a chance to find out. On Feb 21 when Canonical releases the Ubuntu Touch preview, the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 will be supported in addition to phones like the Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 4. Hit the break for the full press release and the press photos.

Utter! Voice Command Beta

The recent update to Google Now has just made one of the nicer Jelly Bean features — offline voice recognition — available for third party developers to use, and voice command app utter! is the first to take advantage of this feature. Utter! is positioning itself to help accomplish most anything that could normally be done by a default Google Voice Search and go beyond that to then let you control other device functions outside of the scope of Google's own offering.

Hang with us after the break to see what utter! brings to the table in its current beta state.

Google Takeout now includes Blogger blogs and Google+ pages

Android Central

Google Takeout — or Takeaway as it seems to be calling itself these days — is the data liberating service of your dreams. Allowing you to export your Google based content should you wish to leave forever, or just want to have a copy for yourselves, the service has been gradually expanding to cover more and more of Google's services in recent months. 

The latest content to come under the liberating front is from Blogger and Google+. Blogger blog posts can now be exported as an Atom Xml file, and Google+ pages can be downloaded as html files with a json file containing the circles for every Google+ page you own. Everything can be taken out, or just individual pages or blogs, it's entirely up to you.
