You Can Now Use an Ubuntu Phone’s Screen as a Touchpad, Miracast Coming Soon


Google+ user Richard Somlói published a few interesting photos earlier on his profile page, showcasing the new functionality on his Nexus 4 Ubuntu Phone connected to an LCD as a converged desktop and using the latest Ubuntu Touch mobile operating system from the rc-proposed channel (only for developers and early adopters).
“Nexus 4 – rc-proposed channel: You can use the phone screen as a touchpad. And if you click in a text field the keyboard appears on the phone screen instead of the external screen,” said Richard Somlói in the Google+ post.
We were very intrigued by the whole thing, so we’ve contacted Michael Hall from Canonical regarding the images posted by Richard Somlói. Mr. Hall reveals exclusively for Softpedia that Nexus 4 devices currently support this functionality, and you can even use two-finger scrolling and three-finger tap for right click.
