Ubuntu what? No 5G? I'm seriously disappointed.

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?

Its 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?
