Ubuntu Edge Smartphone Breaks Crowdfunding Record, Still $21.5 Million Short Of Goal
At the time of this writing, the Ubuntu Edge smartphone campaign has generated $10,485,825--with 6 days to go.
That’s a staggering amount of money, to be sure, and the fact that it’s all crowdsourced is all the more impressive. Still, there’s only so much cause for celebration, as Canonical is trying to raise $32 million, which leaves it less than a third of the way to its goal--with 6 days to go.
$10.5 million may be a record, but Canonical will need another $21.5 million in just a few days in order for it to mean anything; otherwise, the Ubuntu Edge will be nothing more than vaporware.
