Ubuntu Edge, the Crowdfunding and the Convergence

Ebuntu Edge and the Crowdfunding Challenge

The biggest challenge for Crowdfunding was born in America.

In a American web platform, the company Canonical, famous in the world for having realized Ubuntu, starts a campaign for the realization of the first phone capable of turning into a personal computer with operating system (obviously Ubuntu) and able to run common programs for desktop computers.

The project is called Ubuntu Edge and crowdfunding campaign aims to achieve in 30 days $ 32 million!

The father of this challenge is Mark Shuttleworth, CEO of Canonical, who personally explains how the project of creating a single operating system for both phone and computer is already at an advanced development stage with the name of "Ubuntu Phone" but, he says, that phone manufacturers prefer to invest in mass products rather than becoming partners of companies like Canonical that aim to open new frontiers for thecnology.

That's why Mark Shuttleworth decided to look directly to all technology lovers and created a crowdfunding campaign.

The "phone" technical specs: 128GB of storage memory, 4GB of RAM, Sapphire glass and hard steel case, dual LTE antenna, as well as the most powerful CPU in the market (at the date of production), and of course all of the addons we are used to (Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, gyroscope, etc. ..).

When the project starts it has a great success: it achieves $2 million in just 8 hours and after the first 24 hours the campaign has already reached $3.5 million!

Communities around the world participate in this crazy "race against time" to help and at the same time be the protagonists of a great evolutionary step in the information technology. The campaign also exceeds the $10 million record that belonged to PEBBLE Project... and the challenge continues...

If the crowdfunding campaign achieves the goal, Canonical will produce the first phone that can be used at the same time as phone and desktop PC.

The so-called "convergence" between telecommunications and information technology will become a reality.

But what if the campaign will not be successful?

The result is already historic! Because for the first time a big company has seen in Crowdfunding an important resource for research and development.

PROPOSIZIONE.COM is close to Canonical and all his team for this incredible challenge and hopes that other companies will begin to approach the Crowdfunding and opportunities that PROPOSIZIONE.COM offers.
