Canonical beats Pebble as the biggest crowdfunding campaign, hitting $10.3m for Edge

Canonical beats Pebble as the biggest crowdfunding campaign ever, hitting $10.3m for the Ubuntu Edge

Canonical is still way off the pace with its Ubuntu Edge crowdfunding campaign the firm needs to raise more than $20 million in six days to meet its ambitious $32 million target but its still smashing records along the way.

The Indiegogo page has now accrued over $10.3 million in pledges, toppling the Pebble smartwatch as the highest every fixed crowdfunding campaign. The United States is the highest contributing nation, followed by the United Kingdom where Canonical also has offices and Germany.

The company needs $32 million to put the Ubuntu Edge smartphone into production though. Its still possible to raise that amount who knows what will happen in the next week but unless the rate of pledges increases rather significantly, Canonical will miss its goal by some margin.

The handset itself is a novel prospect, packing in 128GB of internal storage, dual-LTE receivers, 4GB of RAM and the ability to dual-boot both Android and Ubuntu OS. The device, if successfully funded, will be a limited run though. So if youre still interested in the handset, theres never been a better time to get behind the campaign.
