Più di 3,5 milioni di dollari in una sola giornata. Questa è la cifra record che ha raggiunto il programma di donazioni di Ubuntu Edge, il nuovissimo super-smartphone di casa Canonical. E per ringraziare tutti coloro che hanno partecipato, il CEO della società Jane Silber (Mark Shuttleworth è il presidente) ha pubblicato un video di ringraziamento.
L’audio è molto basso, di seguito trovate il testo integrale:
Hi everybody, I’m Jane Silber, CEO at Canonical.
I wanna thank you all for the amazing support you’ve shown the Ubuntu Edge campaign already. From the moment it went live yesterday the response has been overwhelming.
We hit around 2 million in funding at around the 8 hour mark – which I understand is a record in the crowdfunding history.
We’re now a little over 10% on the way to our goal which is terrific and we’re really excited about that. But there’s still a long way to go.
We really appreciate all the support you’ve shown, whether you’re pledging to receive an Ubuntu phone yourself or even if you’re just talking about it on Twitter and sharing your excitement on Facebook, on your blogs, with your friends. Every little bit helps to spread awareness and help make this a reality. And we really want to make it real.
We’re as excited in Canonical about this as you are out there.
So continue to show us your support and help us make this – a very tempting prototype – into a reality.
