At exactly 1:59 a.m. (CST) this early Thursday morning, Canonical’s attempt to raise US$32 million directly from end-users via a crowd-funding campaign for its Ubuntu Edge smartphone on Indiegogo came to an unsuccessful end.
The money was to have been used to build what has been dubbed a “superphone” that would have been able to run both Android and Ubuntu Mobile OS and also be capable of transforming into an Ubuntu PC. Canonical, the company behind the campaign, is also the commercial entity that sponsors the Ubuntu Linux distribution.
