Linux News Today: Canonical and Ubuntu Win Two More Awards at Mobile World Congress 2016 – Updated
After winning the “Best of MWC” award from Trusted Reviews, Canonical today announced on its social networking accounts that the company behind Ubuntu Linux won two more awards during Mobile World Congress 2016.
The “Best of MWC” award from Trusted Reviews was giving to Canonical for the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet, which is the first of its kind, and the first truly converged device powered by the Ubuntu operating system.
Then, we’ve told you that Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical and Ubuntu, had a keynote speech at the 4YFN (4 Years From Now) 2016 event that took place during Mobile World Congress 2016.
A few hours later, Canonical posted news that they won yet another award, together with Slock.it. They won the “Best IoT Startup” award, which was given to them by 4YFN, for running blockchain in homes using the Ubuntu Core operating system.
Second “Best of MWC” award, this time from Tom’s Hardware
A few hours later after winning the “Best IoT Startup” award from 4YFN, Canonical announced that they’ve won a third award, which happens to be their second “Best of MWC” award, but this time from Tom’s Hardware.
“And another! That’s 3 awards at MWC16. Swing by so we can demo our BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet and Slock.it project, Hall 3 J30,” bragged Canonical on their Google+ page.
Well, what can we say, congratulations to Canonical and Ubuntu for doing a great job these days on both the mobile and IoT fronts. We can’t wait to get our hands on the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet and Meizu PRO 5 Ubuntu Edition smartphone for a bunch of in-depth reviews.
