After yesterday’s demonstration of Ubuntu Phone OS by Mark Shuttleworth at CES 2013, here comes another video preview (longer this time) of this spectacular operating system for smartphones, created by Canonical.

In the above video (go ahead and click it), Richard Collins, Ubuntu Mobile product manager, is the one in charge with the demonstration of Ubuntu Phone OS, on a Galaxy Nexus device.

The 7-minute-long video reveals some interesting aspects of Ubuntu OS for mobile phones, which are very similar to the ones from Ubuntu's Unity desktop interface.

Among various interesting features, Ubuntu Phone OS comes with a People Lens, which allows users to easily view any detail about their added contacts, and Categorized Apps like Frequently used, Running apps, Available for download and Installed apps.

In a few weeks, Canonical will release a Beta version of Ubuntu OS for smartphones, and we believe that anyone will be able to test it thoroughly.
