What is convergence?

Imagine linking your phone to a monitor, mouse and keyboard and having it instantly transformed into a desktop experience. Convergence is a single user experience that spans to all form factors and adapts to the different contexts of use. It means exactly the same operating system and applications run on phones, tablets and desktops. This is done by using responsive layouts that adapt to the different screen or window sizes.

Convergence supports all input types equally and simultaneously to allow users to interact using a pointer, touch or keyboard; whenever and however they choose.

Convergence with your Nexus 5

At this moment Nexus 5 is the best device to use convergence when Ubuntu Touch is installed on it. The Nexus 5 is an Android smartphone from LG. Its minimalistic design provides a soft touch rear finish and a high glass front. Experience the comfort of Convergence by instant switching between your 4.95 inch Full HD Display and a screen size by choice.

Why did we put priority on Convergence?

Computing has become exponentially fast, cheap and power efficient. As a result, phones and tablets today have the processing power to undertake tasks that only a few years ago required PC hardware. Convergence breaks down the last barrier between form factors. For example, drafting an email on your phone during your journey to work, and then when you arrive at your desk you can plug the phone into a monitor and continue composing the same email in a desktop environment.
