Over-The-Air 11: We’ve gone wireless!

We’re pretty excited about this OTA! We’ve introduced wireless capabilities to the Meizu Pro 5, which gives users the full Ubuntu PC experience running from a smartphone. All the services running from the phone are available on desktop through just a wireless dongle and no cables – giving you the full Ubuntu convergence experience! And the best bit is we’ll be rolling this out across all Ubuntu smartphones and tablets for future OTAs. Here’s a 2 minute video Richard, our Product Manager, has created showing the magic moment – when the Pro 5 wireless connects!

In addition to this feature there are overall performance improvements to the M10 tablet that include speed, bluetooth connectivity and smoother scrolling. Here’s a more detailed summary of all the updates below:

  • Pro 5 users have full Ubuntu convergence using the wireless display feature – the same feature will be available for all future Ubuntu smartphones and tablets
  • Smoother scrolling for the dash and apps giving a more seamless user experience
  • Better mouse responsiveness using bluetooth when the desktop interface is displayed
  • Faster smoother graphics which improve the way content is delivered to the device
  • Automatic scaling for external monitors so the desktop display and application automatically scale to the resolution used on the external monitor
