Ubuntu Edge Campaign Passes $10 Million in Pledges


From OMG! Ubuntu!:
The figure, some $22 million short of Canonical’s required $32 million goal, is made up by contributions from over 21,000 backers.

If the Edge raises another $200,000 before the campaign ends next week then the Edge will break records for the most amount of money pledged to a crowd-funding project – a title currently held by the Pebble Smartwatch.

In a poll we conducted over the weekend asking readers whether they felt the full $32 million would be raised by the deadline nearly 70% said they didn’t think it would.
