About our project

We’ve been through a long creative process, from early concepts and sketches to 3D wireframes and a variety of test handsets. It’s all led us to the beautiful Ubuntu Edge prototype that you see throughout this page.

The Ubuntu Edge is an exclusive production run, available only through Indiegogo. All of the funding we receive goes directly towards producing the device for expected delivery in May 2014. The only pockets getting filled by this campaign will be yours when the handset arrives.

A lot of people around the world have collaborated to get us this far. We have a beautiful prototype Ubuntu Edge handset, we have advanced Ubuntu software running across phone and desktop, we have experienced operators and manufacturing partners in place, and we have incredibly talented and passionate people to put it all together.

All we need now is you. Resume Writing Services Vancouver Bc Risks and Challanges

Although our core business is software for PCs and the cloud, we know the phone industry pretty well too. We’ve been working with manufacturers and carriers, so everything we need is already in place. We also have a team based in Taiwan where the bulk of the production will occur; and we have engineers around the world who have built this kind of product before. We’re well prepared for the journey ahead.

And it is going to be a journey. We’ve set such a high crowdfunding target for a good reason. Between design, certification and manufacture, the costs of building a new phone are huge — but the more we produce, the lower the final cost of each handset. Setting such an ambitious target means a more competitive price per device.

Finally, the very nature of this concept device means the exact component list is fluid until we enter production to ensure we’re picking the best available part at the time. If we are forced to change a major feature or component, we’ll come up with something just as innovative to replace it. If you’ve backed us, you’ll be kept right up to date.


Do I need to add the cost of shipping to my pledge?

If you live in the US or the UK, shipping is free. For all other destinations, please add the amount specified in the perk description. Local import taxes may apply.

What countries and mobile networks will support the Edge?

The Ubuntu Edge is an open device, not locked to any particular network. It works in all countries that provide GSM/3G/LTE-based network services. It will also support the two LTE standards to provide 4G mobile broadband connectivity around the world (subject to network availability and data fees). Before launch we will conduct interoperability testing with networks in Europe, the US, South America, China, India, the Middle East and Africa. This is a normal step in the process of developing a mobile device.

Will the phone receive updates after launch?

The desktop convergence feature will come to Ubuntu phone OS in an update shortly after launch. The OS will also receive daily developer images and frequent stable releases. This is an Open Device, so users can tinker with the software and use standard flashing tools to upload custom builds. If anything goes wrong, Ubuntu OS recovery mode takes you back to the original factory image.

Why set such a high funding goal?

It’s all about scale. To offer the final product at a competitive price we need to produce enough volume to bring the unit costs down. At the same time, we want to be selecting parts that are not yet proven for multi-million-unit production. This is the balance we found. A lower funding target might seem more likely to succeed, but the individual perk amounts would have to be significantly higher. We believe this funding target and these perk levels give us the best chance of success.

What if you fail to reach the funding target?

We appreciate every bit of support we receive during the 30 days, and every backer will be welcomed into the Ubuntu community. If we don’t reach our target then we will focus only on commercially available handsets and there will not be an Ubuntu Edge.

What warranties apply to the Ubuntu Edge?

If you are not happy with the product, you may return it within 28 days of receiving it for a full refund. Please note, Canonical can not cover the cost of the return postage and packaging.

What if my question isn’t answered here?

We’re happy to respond to any other queries you might have about the Ubuntu Edge, the Indiegogo campaign, and our company as a whole. Email us at
