Meet the Ubuntu Edge

Popular Linux OS Ubuntu is working on their own smart phone, the Ubuntu Edge. They’re currently trying to raise $32,000,000 to secure funding for the project. The phone will be able to boot up into Ubuntu OS or Android OS, and will have some majorly impressive stats.

Compared to the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4:

Only thing I can see that isn’t better than either the iPhone 5 or Galaxy S4 is the screen, but honestly on a 4.5 inch screen 720p is still pretty damn impressive.
