The Phone of The Century: Ubuntu Edge

Ubuntu Edge

OMG. For years I have waited for a phone that has everything that I want, without compromise. So what did I do? I shelled out $600 to help the Campaign! I don’t think that I have ever been this excited about a phone! Please, please help them raise the $32 million that they need to achieve in ONE MONTH! (Wed 21 Aug 11:59PM PT) You can donate as little as $20. There is already well over $1 million raised in like 14 hours, so I think we are going to make it!

  • Fully integrated Ubuntu desktop PC when docked – DUDE!

HI! My name is Erica Griffin. I am known on the interwebs as The Technology Nerd Who Likes to Film Stuff. I create insanely in-depth technology reviews as well as blog my experiences about what it is like to incorporate them into everyday living! I am from San Diego, CA. I went to the University of California, San Diego for my bachelors degree in Cognitive Science (I studied brains and hormones and why people do what they do). I specialized in Human Computer Interaction. Then I minored in Digital Media Production. Mix that all together and you get THE TECHNOLOGY NERD WHO LIKES TO FILM STUFF hehe. I love my boyfriend, François Simond, aka Supercurio, from XDA. He means everything to me and has been so supportive of me through all this! I love tech (obviously), I like to sing, I like to make origami models, I love to travel, I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and savior....

  1. That’s a sexy phone. Although. Personally, I would rather it be full android until I dock it then auto switch to ubuntu. Like that old idea from a couple years a go now I think it was. By the way. What ever happened to that?

  2. All you had to say was the first three things.

    I want this phone sooo bad. It will trully be the mobile device of devices.

      1. That’s sad you didn’t feel like replying me. I understand you might have been tight on schedule but I assumed that if you replied to one of your fans then I might also get one. Hope to get a reply soon.

  3. Hey Erica. Can I donate for them from India? I mean do have any idea about the launch of this phone in India? I would surely like to donate. If it’s possible then plz let me know from where can I make this happen, any link or something would do.

  4. Can’t for your review on it in 2014. It’s gonna be a versatile mobile device. I don’t think I’ll need a computer any more. Maybe a big monitor to connect it to…

  5. Aaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!
    I’m so psyched with this phone! I wants it!
    Thank you Erica for the heads-up on the precious!

  6. don’t get too excited, desktop work on an ARM processor? seems unlikely.

    the phone part seems good though.

  7. I would love to see a follow up brake down of the China made Meizu MX3 VS the Spanish BQ. From what info I could dig up I was flavoring the MX3 for hardware… Most others seem to favor the BQ. I would really value your input.

  8. Nice interview but I had much prefer a dual android/full windows OS…but that’s just me.
    Also smartphone should be waterproof if possible…
