Ubuntu Edge – the next generation of personal computing is almost here


Personally, over two years I’ve been waiting for a device with desktop capabilities, which you may easily connect to the external monitor and use like a regular desktop PC. Well, it looks like it’s a matter of months now, when the first Ubuntu powered Android smartphone will be available on the market.

The new concept device named Ubuntu Edge is a smartphone, running full Ubuntu desktop OS with ability to boot into Android and make a calls like you do from your regular Android phone.

The Ubuntu Edge is an exclusive production run, available only through Indiegogo, where its crowdfunding campaign is still running and the goal is set to $32,000,000.

Major facts:

  • Exclusive to Indiegogo backers. The Edge will NOT be available to buy at launch.
  • Specs to be finalised as late as possible to ensure the best available components.
  • Dual-boots into Ubuntu mobile OS and Android; converts into a full desktop PC.
  • Works with LTE and GSM networks, including Verizon and Sprint.
  • Perks include all charges for US and UK, including VAT and delivery.
  • Standard manufacturer warranty will apply once manufacturer is selected.Zero cost to backers if the campaign is unsuccessful.

Ubuntu Edge specs:

Mobile OS:        Dual-boots Android and Ubuntu mobile
Desktop OS:     Ubuntu Desktop
RAM:                 4GB
Int. Storage:     128GB
Screen:             720 x 1,280, 4.5 inches
Protection:        Sapphire Glass
Connectivity:     Dual-LTE, GSM
Speakers:          Stereo
Battery:              Silicon-anode Li-ion
Price:                 $695

In my opinion Ubuntu Edge will be really a “killer phone” to all its android counterparts, not only because it is started off with a fundamentally good idea, but also, because this will be a device that will fill a serious gap in the smartphone marketplace, no doubt.

  1. Hello! I’ve been following your weblog for a long time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Humble Texas!
    Just wanted to mention keep up the good job!

  2. Network With the fast development of new technology also brings more Network Security Problem.
    DDo – S attacks aim to take down your business’s website or entire
    network essentially halting business and causing you to lose business.

    A DDo – S attack does no permanent damage; the website is not hacked,
    and no information is tampered with, lost or stolen.

  3. A VPN is oftentimes described as delivering a
    way for users to develop a secure tunnel over a public network.
    The difficulty in even identifying these application-layer attacks renders traditional DDo
    – S solutions ineffective, leading to lost revenue and business disruption. As everybody is aware of the prevalence
    of rampant security breaches it is a risky situation to continue business without intelligent and enhanced security solutions.

    make your posts a little bit more interesting.
