I thought I should post about the Ubuntu Edge from Canonical, which is set to one of the best mobile phone’s in 2014, only IF funding is received by August the 21st 2013.

Canonical currently have an Indiegogo campaign setup for funding the manufacturing of the phone.  Looking at the current concept images, they have done an exceptional job at designing this piece of hardware. Including great specifications to match.

A processor has not been decided on yet however this is to allow the phone to get a processor with the latest processing architecture and power available at the time of production! The Ubuntu Edge specs are as follows so far:
