Canonical Announces New Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition Tablet with Convergence Features

Some of you may remember back in 2013 when Canonical announced the Ubuntu mobile OS. Aside from being an Ubuntu-powered OS made specifically for mobile, it also hoped to reinvent the way we used our devices with a new Convergence feature which would essentially turn your smartphone or tablet into a full Ubuntu Desktop. Unfortunately since then we've heard little about this feature actually coming to the consumer. Then, Canonical announced the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition, the first Ubuntu-powered Tablet with Convergence features.

Ubuntu Edge IndieGoGo Unsurprisingly Fails to Reach $32,000,000 Goal

After what has felt like a ridiculously long 30 days Canonicals ambitious IndieGoGo campaign for the rather spectacular Ubuntu Edge smartphone has failed to reach it's fairly high target of $32,000,000.

Though the attempt at reaching the thirty two million dollar target failed, the campaign didn't really fail. What I mean by this is that the campaign managed to reach an outstanding $12,809,906 which has actually broken the crowdfunding record previously set by the Pebble Smartwatch. That's at least something, right?

Canonical update Ubuntu Edge IndieGoGO but are they clutching at straws?

Canonical's IndieGoGo campaign the absolutely amazing Ubuntu Edge has been running for almost 14 days now. They've currently raised a little over $8,000,000 of their $32,000,000 needed to actually supply the hardware to backers but the funding seems to have plateaued causing Canonical to add more incentives as well as a brand new video introducing the hardware, but is it enough or is the campaign destined to fail - I think it's the latter.

The Ubuntu Edge IndieGoGo campaign has been live for around 2 days now and has already raised a whopping $4,284,849. Yesterday Canonical announced that they'd hit the 10% mark and as well had sold completely out of the $600 "Day One" price band for the Ubuntu Edge phone and in replacement added a new "Double Edge" perk which for $1400 secured you two Ubuntu Edge mobiles at a discounted rate.

Ubuntu Touch recieves Verizon backing as they join Ubuntu Carrier Advisory...

I've been keeping my beady eyes on Canonical's Ubuntu mobile OS since it's announcement in January this year and one of the major deciding factors as to whether this Linux operating system will be making it's way onto mobile was whether smartphone manufacturers and carriers adopted the OS.
