Canonical Crowdfunds Ubuntu Edge Phone/PC Combo

First came cellphones, then smartphones, and now the open source, Linux-powered Ubuntu and Google (GOOG) Android “superphone” that Canonical says will integrate a full desktop PC and mobile computing device into one handheld package. It’s called Ubuntu Edge, and it could be coming soon, or not, depending on whether Canonical succeeds in raising $32 million in crowdsourced funding.
