Ubuntu Edge official

With just two weeks left in its campaign to raise $32 million for the Ubuntu Edge, Canonical announced today that it's slashing the price of its smartphone through the remainder of its effort. Originally launched for $830 (with a special $600 one-day early bird tier), interested consumers can now pre-order an Edge for $695, which Canonical says will be the final price change that it enacts. Any customers that previously backed the Edge at a higher price will have the difference refunded to them at the end of the campaign. 

While this new $695 price tag isn't quite the lowest price that the Ubuntu Edge has been available for, it does represent a pretty nice discount over the device's original $830 cost. However, with only $8.57 million of its $32 million goal, the Edge still has a lot of pledges to gain in the two weeks remaining in its campaign. This latest price reduction could help convince a few fence sitters to finally pull the trigger on an Edge, but we'll just have to wait and see whether it's enough to put this dual-booting Android and Ubuntu smartphone into production.
