Ubuntu for phones' image-taking capabilities demoed at CES 2013
Days later after its official announcement, Ubuntu for phones attracted a massive amount of feedback, as expressed by users, developers, media and widely-known powerful corporations (such as AT&T, US-based corporation manifesting a publicly-displayed interest for Ubuntu for phones).
During the first day at CES 2013, numerous Ubuntu developers have presented, explained and described the polished innovative phone OS via numerous points-of-view/directions, such as to-be-pursued future goals, touch-based interactions, performance optimizations, etc.
In the below clip, Ubuntu for phones is demoed, the developer exposing native apps (like for example, the image gallery) and Web Apps (like for instance, the Facebook app), stating that (as previously announced by Canonical, too) both app types (native and Web Apps) are first-class citizens in Ubuntu for phones.
A definitely interesting aspect of the below clip is the demoing of the device's image-taking capabilities (under Ubuntu phone OS), clearly proving that, while in its early public beginnings, the fancy phone OS is already capable of not only recognizing various device hardware components, but also can easily take pictures.
