Canonical Raises $3 Million (€2.27M) for Ubuntu Edge in Less than a Day

The crowd-founding campaign has started very well for Canonical

The Ubuntu Edge crowd-founding project announced by Canonical has managed to get a good start, raising a little over $3 million (€2.27 million) in under a day.

Canonical has started a crowd-founding campaign for a device called Ubuntu Edge that will supposedly integrates the best hardware around, at the time of its launch, in May 2014.

The first day on IndiGoGo, the website they've chosen as a platform for their device, has went rather well, and Canonical has managed to raise over $3 million (€2.27 million).

They initially asked for $32 million (€24.2 million), but in order to achieve this target (which in fact is the largest of its kind in the short history of crowd-founding) Canonical will need to maintain this trend for the entire duration of the campaign.
