    They would have to spend 20mill in advertizing before this campaign would it it's goal. Or they can just let it expire and Shuttleworth can foot the bill. I suspect the latter is what will happen. I have no doubt this product will be made one way or another.

    Oh it's still possible, but only if some big players jump in and buy the crap out of it.

    Also if they extend the campaign by a month or two they could make it.

    you realize how much shuttleworth is worth, right?

    This campaign isnt going to reach it's goal, but I suspect Shuttleworth will fork up the money to begin production anyway.

    Phoronix: Ubuntu Edge At $11M With Less Than Three Days Left

    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...
