We had all the suppliers lined up and had already spent countless hours working on the design.
hours? crazy.

campaign host studies education and no hardware, proto's or mockups anywhere.

edit: and it is flexible funding, so if she doens't reach the goal, no obligations and she still gets the money. this another one of her campaigns that failed 4 days ago.

i call scam and all funders will never see a product or their money again

Good luck with that :)
  • an unknown company
  • no mention of warranty and repair service
  • created by a "Hard working farm and city girl with big dreams and endless ambition." studying her major in Education
  • the video promises 2TB of internal storage, yet they promise 1TB everywhere else
  • includes a stylus, but no mention of digitizer
  • no mention on shipping or taxes
  • of course it is the infamous 'Flexible funding' so I wouldn't be surprised if they run away with the money halfway through the fundraiser
  • is Ubuntu for Tablets even stable (or is expected to be by the time this is supposed to arrive)?

EDIT: Dirk was faster :)
tl;dr: It is a scam.

Who can honestly buy that?

Itīs like buying a kebab on the street and think they are going for a meal at Masa in New York City that costs $585 per person.

Surely anyone who can recognise ubuntu touch (or even know what ubuntu is), would be wise enough to know this is ain't right. So who would fund a project based on an OS that even canonical admits is not ready?
