    they’re getting a bit of a kicking over the way they’re managing the kickstarter project.

    The Ubuntu Edge is the next generation of personal computing: smartphone and desktop PC in one state-of-the-art device.

    Like the concept, just a shame the software I sell is Windows only. The versions for the Nexus phone & tablets are coming soon I hear.

    I’m genuinely shocked it’s made as much as it has. £500 for a big rectangular smartphone, running a free operating system, in May 2014.

    Buy a Nexus 4 and install:

    If you’re really that into the idea. Even if they sold the ~40,000 required to hit the Kickstarter figure, that’s a tiny sliver of the smartphone population, why would people switch?

    I guess people are expecting to get something alot better than a Nexus 4 which will be impressive and paying to see the project succeed.

    Good luck to them then, they’re not actually getting promised much for their money.

    I guess there are enough people around who want the freedom to code and hack their own stuff on a mobile device, and don’t want to be involved with Android who would be interested.

    That and looking at the desktop integration side as a one device for everything part of it, this could be an impressive project. I don’t have the cash to stump up but i’d be tempted as the phone could be flashed back to android (95% sure). I’m looking at Some Galaxy Nexus’s on ebay to have a go with it.
