Ubuntu Edge arrives with price tag


Ubuntu Edge Arrives With Price Tag

Canonical has finally got rid of its complicated tier system when it comes to selling the Ubuntu Edge and has released a price tag for the mobile phone.

The high-end handset could be yours for £447 but the good news is that, anyone who paid over that amount for the device, could be refunded. It hopes to raise just under £21 million in crowdfunding, but with two weeks left they still have nearly £15.5 million left to get.

Carnocial is probably hoping that the simpler pricing will help raise the funds with the limited time period left.

It said on the device's website: "You wanted a more affordable Edge, and now you've got it."

Although the specifications aren't confirmed, it is thought the 4.5-inch handset will carry 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The Edge is designed to outpower the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, iPhone 5 and Lumia 928.
