Ubuntu Edge, The First Ubuntu Smartphone Beats Pebble as Largest Crowdfunding Campaign

The Indiegogo campaign for the Ubuntu Edge, the first Ubuntu smartphone from Canonical, has beat out Pebble as biggest crowdfunding campaign. As of this writing Canonical has raised over $10.4 milion compared to Pebble’s final $10,266,845, but the project still has a long way to go to reach its $32 million goal before the campaign ends in six days. The Ubuntu Edge, if funded, will be a 4.5-inch 720p smartphone that can dual boot Android and Linux on a multi-core processor with 4GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and LTE capability. The project is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo.
