Ubuntu Edge raises $10 million not likely to hit $32,000,000 goal.

The Ubuntu Edge is a very interesting smartphone, that hopes to dual boot Android and Ubuntu mobile, plus have a Ubuntu Desktop OS.

Rather than use Kickstarter, Canonical has chosen to use Indiegogo, and while they have raised a record breaking $10,327,371 (vs $10,266,846 for the Pebble Smartwatch) it is unlikely they will hit their goal of $32,000,000. Which is a shame as it has some impressive specs in comparison to the SGS4 and iPhone 5
