Since we mentioned safety, here it is. The operating system protects the root access and allows access to the admin only. This feature makes it very safe as the system won’t open the windows. In case it does so ever, it will be for a limited time only. So, with this operating system you naturally do not need Anti-virus and anti-spyware.
“The vast majority of viruses and spyware written by hackers are not designed to target and attack Linux” said Dell's Ubuntu site in 2010.

The tablet will have multiple secure user accounts, and
a guest account, which will be perfect for families and friends, and ideal for the office, with secure multi-user logins that make using and sharing devices safe.
Data protection is world class with full disk encryption, and additional encryption for personal data, making Ubuntu perfect for sensitive environments and regulatory compliance in the medical, military, industrial and finance sectors.

When you lodge the Ubuntu mobile phone against a touchscreen tablet, the phone will offer a better tablet+mobile experience.
