    Sometimes, you push obligations back for too long and they just pile up, week after week after week, until they never get done. Well, when we started the Pocketnow Weekly technology podcast just over one year ago, we decided that listener mail -your mail- was going to be a big part of it, and it's consistently added flavor to the show. But the last few weeks have been so packed with news that we've been forced to neglect our listener mailbag - much to the justified consternation of some of our loyal writers-in. So today, we're finally making good on a long-held debt: we're devoting an ...

    Last month, we heard about Canonical's fantastically ambitious plan to crowdsource the funding of a seriously high-end smartphone, the Ubuntu Edge. The Edge would boast specs like 4GB of RAM and 128GB of flash, while being capable of dual-booting into either Ubuntu for phones or regular old Android. The plan's goal is to raise $32 million over the course of a month, but halfway through, Canonical has yet to even hit the $10 million mark. Today, Canonical instituted a major price break on the Edge, but will it be enough to turn around the declining momentum that the campaign's been seeing? ...

It's all wildly ambitious. I have serious concerns about Canonical's ability to pull this off, and we're talking about a serious amount of money to ask people to hand over with plans for availability still so far away. At first, I was content to just sit back and see how this story unfolds, covering the news like with any launch, ...

    Ubuntu has positioned itself to be one of this year's many smartphone platform upstarts – the littler guys who are trying to elbow their way into an already incredibly competitive market. We were able to give Ubuntu a lot of hands-on time earlier this year when those preview builds arrived for Nexus-series devices, but news on the platform has been relatively quiet ever since. Today, we finally hit a big Ubuntu milestone, with Canonical starting a major fundraiser campaign for the Ubuntu Edge handset. The Indiegogo campaign seeks to raise an astounding $32 million for development of the ...

    Last month, we heard some rumors about a pretty compelling Android from Huawei, featuring a 4.9-inch 1080p display and measuring just 6.3 millimeters thick. We didn't have a name at the time, but were told that Huawei might be ready to announce the phone as soon as this month. Well, that still hasn't happened yet, but now some new rumors have us wondering if there could be a lot more to that phone's story. Supposedly, Huawei is working on a stylish aluminum unibody phone, in the spirit of the HTC One. This handset would reportedly be called the EDGE, and it's notable for having all of its ...
