Ubuntu Edge Passes 20% Crowd-Funding Milestone



/ 5 years ago

Ubuntu’s new “Edge” smartphone got off to a flying start generating nearly $3.2 million in under a day of its Indiegogo campaign. Canonical’s new smartphone has now passed 22% of its funding target. Currently $7 million of the $32 million total has been generated in a few days.

In those few days the discounted versions of the phone have now vanished and now Canonical is trying to lure crowd-funders in with other perks such as limited edition phones. The campaign still has 24 days left to achieve another $25 million and it remains to be seen whether it can achieve such a milestone.

The Ubuntu Edge has the following specifications:

  • Dual boot Ubuntu mobile OS and Android
  • Fully integrated Ubuntu desktop PC when docked
  • Fastest multi-core CPU, 4GB RAM, 128GB storage
  • Micro-SIM
  • 4.5in 1,280 x 720 HD sapphire crystal display
  • 8mp low-light rear camera, 2mp front camera
  • Dual-LTE, dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4, NFC
  • GPS, accelerometer, gyro, proximity sensor, compass, barometer
  • Stereo speakers with HD audio, dual-mic recording, Active Noise Cancellation
  • 11-pin connector providing simultaneous MHL and USB OTG
  • 3.5mm jack
  • Silicon-anode Li-Ion battery
  • 64 x 9 x 124mm

    I usually have no interest in the mobile market at all but this has piqued my interest a little. I remember people scoffing at Apples first iPhone and look at it today.

    I can see like a moto lab dock, but built for this phone and you would basically have a laptop running ubuntu 😛 then once you unplug it, boom turns back into a phone…

    Well, that was really quick.

    I think they will cross the 100% mark in no time.
