Ubuntu Edge gets price hack to boost Indiegogo pledges

You might remember that dual-booting Linux and Android-powered phone that we discussed last month. It's called the Ubuntu Edge and it's hoping to change the mobile landscape in a big way. However, before it can do that, Canonical needs some funding help in order to produce the phone for the masses, and it seems like pledges are slowing down, for which Canonical is bumping the price down in order to get more people interested.

YotaPhone 2 for US cancelled over ‘unforeseen’ delays

The YotaPhone 2, a Russian-made smartphone with an LCD front and an e-ink back, launched for US buyers via the crowdfunding website Indiegogo.

But hold your horses, that doesn't mean they really got $25 million in cash, only that the sum was a "non-binding indication of interest."
