Ubuntu Touch also supports some basic games.
The operating system also currently supports a few basic games. The fancy stuff--Candy Crush anyone?--is still a ways off.
The new Ubuntu smartphone OS also supports a variety of media programs.
Ubuntu Touch also supports other media programs such as an online radio player. There are still only a handful of Ubuntu Touch apps at this time, but more should be coming quickly.
And, yes, Ubuntu Touch also comes with a Linux shell terminal.
Finally, a golden oldie. Yes, you can run a Linux shell on an Ubuntu phone if you really, really want to. What's probably more useful: You also can run ssh from, or to, the phone for remote administration work.
The real charm isn't using Ubuntu Touch for a blast from our character-based interface past; it's that taken as a whole, the edge-based interface is very easy to use and it's fast to learn.
Is it ready for everyone? No. This is still an early release and it needs many more apps. That said, if you're a power phone user or a developer, it's well worth exploring. Ubuntu Touch just may be the future of smartphones and tablets.
