Ubuntu Edge Docking

30 days to go. That is what the page on Indigogo says about the smarta**phone. Guess there is still a month to go for the phone to be launched
Also you can launch the Ubuntu Desktop from within the Android itself using the Ubuntu for Android app :-D. This feature will soon be added to the Ubuntu touch as well :-(
Just connect the phone to any HDMI enabled monitor and you will get a full fledged Ubuntu Desktop running on the monitor with shared access to the files.
