Means connect via USB, so ignore the phrase "dock". 

Also, its not just linux on your phone, its your phone on your desktop. It's what makes this exciting. Having 1 interface, with equal capability, on your phone, and desktop, with cross connectivity (linux has not had this before, as Android sync apps are written for Windows) between them both.

Anyway, I don't think this will impact Android, or Linux in the grand scheme of things, but it will change the way other manufacturers see sync and connectivity apps.

Android phone.

Would someone please explain where is the benefit.


The best I could suggest is to have a look at the videos that 
are availble. - (A good one here - http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2012/02/watch-ubuntu-for-android-in-action/ 

You use Android on your phone as normal, but once you dock 
your phone you are running an Ubuntu Desktop (just need the 
mouse, keyboard and screen that is also attached to the dock)... 
Basically you carry your PC with you where ever you go... 

Next question is how does one dock a cell phone. I have a Samsung 
Galaxy Ace?
