Ubuntu Edge Crosses $3 Million In 24 Hours, Limited Edition Handset Sold Out

Canonical-developed Ubuntu Edge Smartphone, the first official Smartphone to launch with Ubuntu for mobile inside, is racing away towards its Indiegogo goal. Canonical set a very high $32 million goal to be collected in 32 days, but it might be over sooner than that. Mind you, this translates to $1 million in funding each day, but the current rate, no doubt an initial surge (but we pray it doesn't die out) is far higher, to the tune of $3 million in just 24 hours.

For those who are hearing about the campaign only now and desire to purchase an Ubuntu Edge Smartphone for yourselves, you're slightly late to the "Limited Edition" party. The limited edition is nothing but the first 5000 phones, or the phones sold in the first 24 hours, which costs $600 a piece. Mind you, you're paying $600 for a phone with a screaming fast quad-core processor, a whopping 4 GB of RAM, a 4.5" HD display and a dual-boot configuration. Yes, the Ubuntu Edge dual-boots Android and Ubuntu for mobile, making it the first official Smartphone ever to official dual-boot two different OSes.
