There's only two and a half days left to Canonical's Ubuntu Edge crowd-funding campaign for building a high-end smart-phone running Ubuntu. Unfortunately, the campaign is still about twenty million dollars short of its $32M goal.
As of writing this morning, the month-long Ubuntu Edge campaign has raised just $11.4 million dollars (USD), most of which was raised early on in the campaign. While several thousand people have pledged $695 or more in hopes of obtaining such a high-end "converged device" smartphone by the end of H1'2014, this phone isn't going to happen.
