Ubuntu Edge - Formula One of smartphones

4 years ago | 6721 Views
London-based Canonical has launched the most ambitious crowdfunding project in history, asking for $32m (£20.8m) of investment in just one month to create the Ubuntu Edge, described as the Formula One of smartphones.



What is Ubuntu Edge?

In the car industry, Formula 1 provides a commercial testbed for cutting-edge technologies. The Ubuntu Edge project aims to do the same for the mobile phone industry -- to provide a low-volume, high-technology platform, crowdfunded by enthusiasts and mobile computing professionals. A pioneering project that accelerates the adoption of new technologies and drives them down into the mainstream.

This beautifully crafted smartphone is a proving ground for the most advanced mobile technologies on the horizon, a showpiece for true mobile innovation. And at the heart of it all is convergence: connect to any monitor and this Ubuntu phone transforms into an Ubuntu PC, with a fully integrated desktop OS and shared access to all files.

We're fascinated by converged computing, the idea that the smartphone in your pocket can also be the brain of the PC on your desk. We've shaped Ubuntu so you can transition seamlessly between the two environments. Now all that's needed is a phone that's designed from the ground up to be a PC as well.

The Ubuntu Edge is our very own superphone, a catalyst to drive the next generation of personal computing.
