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:
|Mobile Phone||Ubuntu Edge||iPhone 5||Samsung Galaxy S4|
|Mobile OS||Android and Ubuntu||iOS||Android|
|Desktop OS||Ubuntu Desktop||No||No|
|Screen||720 x 1,280, 4.5″||640 x 1,136, 4″||1,080 x 1,920, 5″|
|Protection||Sapphire Glass||Corning Gorilla Glass||Corning Gorilla Glass 3|
|Connectivity||Dual-LTE, GSM||LTE, GSM||LTE, GSM|
If you contribute now, it’s not much more than your average smart phone price.
To see this great piece of hardware come to life, help make it happen by securing your own device and contributing over at indiegogo.
