In parallel with the Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, another event, dubbed Embedded World Exhibition & Conference, took place in Nürnberg, Germany. As the name suggests, it was focused on embedded platforms. This is a domain where Canonical has a great presence with Snappy Ubuntu Core, so they couldn’t miss it.
In fact, a couple of very important pieces of news have already arrived from Germany. First of all, Canonical has revealed that Dragonboard 410c is now their reference platform for Ubuntu Core on ARM 64-bit and that Dell’s Box PC 3000 and 5000 Series are going to ship with Ubuntu.
Another company has announced that it plans to partner up with Canonical. MediaTek is known for its embedded solutions, and the fact that fact that they intend to have future-proofed home gateways and premium routers powered by Snappy Ubuntu Core is great news.
