To this end it is ending its investment Unity8, its phone and convergence shell.

Shuttleworth also said the company was stopping development of its Unity desktop and reverting back to GNOME with the next Ubuntu release which is slated for October. Note that Shuttleworth didn't specifically state that Ubuntu software development for smartphones and tablet PCs was coming to an end.

The switch to GNOME also makes it clear that Canonical have given up on Mir and moving over to the Wayland display server which happens to one of the prime contenders for replacing the X window system.

Mark Shuttleworth, the founder of Canonical, the maker of Ubuntu announced that they are giving up on Unity.

You might also know that most of the IoT work in auto, robotics, networking, and machine learning is also on Ubuntu, with Canonical providing commercial services on many of those initiatives.

Looking to the future, Shuttleworth said that Ubuntu would now concentrate its investments in "areas which are contributing to the growth of the company". "The number and size of commercial engagements around Ubuntu on cloud and IoT has grown materially and consistently". He said that while what the Unity8 team had delivered so far was "beautiful, usable and solid", he respected that "markets, and community, ultimately decide which products grow and which disappear". To be fair the GNOME at the time was not that great either and was going through a bad patch, but most advanced users were ignoring Unity right from the start.
