Earlier today, we let you know all about the newly announced Ubuntu Edge, which Canonical is planning as its flagship developer device that will show off its vision for convergent computing. In order to generate the cash needed to produce the device, Canonical turned to crowd-sourced funding on Indigogo with an aim of $32 million total; and, it's off to a solid start...

i'm pretty sure most of the phones released in 2014 are going to be a 'beast' aswell, Ubuntu your not alone.

But 600 dollars for a phone with the fastest multicore processor and 4gb of ram and that 128 display?
Next year's flagship may come with only 3 gb of ram and 64 gb of memory at max and I that will cost you around 800 dollars for sure.

I was thinking of funding it until I see the 720p screen. I have some issues with zoomed out text on my nexus 4 already with the 720p screen so I think higher resolution matters, despite their claim on it being an overhead.
I do like their hardware design though.

This is a great device if one may ask. Haters gonna hate on that display, but I see no big advantages with the 1080p display with today's flagship phones. Ohhh that 4gb of ram and 128 gb of memory. Not to mention the dual booting capabilities.

With those Specs sure its gonna be a great contender. With a cohesive User-Interface, fast web-browser, and great camera, would be enough for me!
