Ubuntu Edge pricing drops again but still far off from goal
I know I'm speaking about these numbers like they're small and I fully recognize that raising 8.5MM is really remarkable, especially for this kind of device. I just wonder if setting that goal of 32MM was to lofty of a goal. Would they have been better served saying "We're only going to run an initial production of 5,000 units" and just let people buy them.
They're at $9 million with 13 days left. I think that it is safe to say that the project will not reach the goal. Even if someone or multiple someones bought the remaining 49 Enterprise bundle that would only add $4 million to the bottom line, almost $20 million short.
Maybe the 5,000 production run suggested is too many. Currently there at about 800 phones. Maybe a 2,500 production run would have been better.
