Not to mention the price is awful.
Actually I've bought the majority of my phones outside of contracts, but thanks for the condescending and assuming bullshit that comes standard with any conversation with you. I have however, never paid more than $400 for a smart phone. Currently I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S2 & a Motorola Droid 4. If you can take a moment to actually search for a phone unlocked that isn't sold directly by a carrier, you'll find that even on the high end $620 or so is near the max, iPhone excluded. That's a far cry from the Ubuntu Edge looking to land at $780-$830.
