Ubuntu Edge Superphone Announced: Multi-core CPU, 4GB RAM and 128GB storage!

Canonical has just announced its plans to develop the Ubuntu Edge, converging mobile convenience with desktop power in a single device. The Ubuntu Edge will dual-boot Ubuntu phone OS and Android, and will transform into a PC when docked with a monitor, with the full Ubuntu desktop and shared access to all the phone's files.

For this it needs the power of a PC, so Ubuntu Edge will be equipped with the latest, fastest components and a massive 128GB of storage. The exquisitely crafted device replaces the traditional glass screen with a pure Sapphire crystal, so tough it could only be scratched by diamond. It will also pioneer the use of long-life silicon anode battery technology. A special dual-LTE solution will all allow high-speed roaming with access to 4G-LTE broadband in both Europe and the US.

Ubuntu Edge aims to be a catalyst for mobile innovation as well as hardware and software development. By supporting Ubuntu Edge, Canonical is seeking your help through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to accelerate the adoption of these new technologies in mass-market consumer phones. The crowdfunding campaign also aims to raise an unprecedented $32 million over 30 days for a limited production run of 40,000 devices and an expected delivery in May 2014.

Upon completion, the Ubuntu Edge will be the realization of Canonical's disruptive vision for a single operating system driving phones, tablets, conventional computers and TVs.

  1. $830 ang price... Free shipping in US and UK, $30 in other places...
    (@1 USD = 43.2271 PHP)
    37k ang price... about the same price ng 64GB versions ng S4, iPhone 5, etc...

  2. yes... compare that to a new release apple products specifically iphones and ipads which are 40k pesos and more but with mid-range specs.

  3. I believe that the price range of this phone would be $800. since these guys said that they're aiming $32 million and just produce 40000 units = 32000000 / 40000 = $800 which is equals to 35000 pesos.

  4. wow... another platform to tinker and develop apps with, cool. Can't wait...

  5. but 5000 of them are now SOLD OUT at a price of $630 and awhile ago. They Added a new Perk ranging from $625 - $750:)
