Default Canonical tries to crowd-source $32m for Ubuntu Edge

BBC News - Ubuntu Edge smartphone seeks $32m of crowdfunded cash

Ubuntu Edge | Indiegogo

Cost of the phone is outlandish, but it's supposed to essentially be a desktop in phone form factor. As well as a virtually scratch-proof screen. I'm surprised at how quickly they're getting funding was well, at this rate they'll double their target by the time the campaign is over.

On a side note, Ubuntu forums were hacked: Ubuntu Forums Hacked, All User Data Swiped | NextPowerUp

$830?! Definitely more than I'd ever spend on a phone.

For an $800+ phone I would have expected more than a 720p screen. Phones have been selling with that resolution for a couple of years already...nothing cutting edge there.
