Canonical drops Ubuntu Edge price to $695 for rest of crowdfunding campaign

Canonical's Indiegogo campaign for the Ubuntu Edge smartphone had an auspicious start, but it slowed down after the first few days. The Linux developer may have just rekindled interest, however, by dropping the regular price of the Edge from $775 to $695 for the last two weeks of the crowdfunding drive. Part supplier deals helped reduce the manufacturing costs, Canonical explains. While that's not the lowest price that we've seen during the campaign, there won't be another discount -- if you're at all interested in the unique Android and Ubuntu hybrid, you'll want to make a pledge today.

I'm not sure that price drop will make that much of a difference, but who knows.

Can't see them pulling in $23m in the next 14 days. Great project although they set the funding amount way too high..

There are still two weeks left. I'll keep an eye out, thinking of buying one as an investment, since it's a limited edition it would sell for crazy amounts on ebay next year. Assuming it doesn't turn out to be a turd.

That's a big assumption that the campaign is going to be funded, and there is going to be a demand on ebay anywhere

If the campaign makes it there's going to be demand for reselling, it's just the nature of humans, as soon as you can't have it, you really want it.

There's always demand for limited editions of anything.
