Failed Funding Effort Blunts Canonical’s Ubuntu Edge

Canonical raised more than $12 million over 30 frantic days of crowdfunding its ambitious Ubuntu Edge superphone project, but it was still short some $20 million by the time the effort closed on Wednesday. The company’s target was $32 million. “We raised $12,809,906, making the Edge the world’s biggest ever fixed crowdfunding campaign,” wrote Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth in an announcement after the campaign ended. “Let’s not lose sight of what an achievement that is.”
