After stabilizing Ubuntu Touch Operating System for the mobile platform, the company started focus more in its desktop versions. And we can assume now that both the desktop and mobile versions are slated for a launch together with convergence which would make Ubuntu 16.04 LTS the first version to bring this feature in the Ubuntu family.

Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Canonical Ltd. made a formal statement earlier in the past that BQ was working on a mobile device to release it in 2015. And now that the release has been postponed to 2016, we can also assume that Ubuntu is going to launch the phone along with this feature.

And at the same time, there are also speculations that Ubuntu is working on a convergent device that works both as a desktop and a mobile.

Ubuntu has recently missed its goal of achieving 200 million users in 2015, but this convergent feature when released might help the OS to fetch a few users from Android and iOS.
