Thank you for the heads up!
 
I want to make this phone/portable computer happen. I Just pledged.
 
I hope they reach the goal :). Looking forward getting it in May 2014

Regarding the screen: I agree with Mark Shuttleworth, In a small device higher resolution means less brilliance.

I keep telling people that more megapixels do not equate a better camera unless it is paired with larger sensors and better electronics and firmware.

Of possible interest to the list:

Looks like Ubuntu is crowdsourcing their phone project:

http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/ubuntu-edge

The specs are definitely top-end: fast multi-core CPU, 4GB RAM, 128GB
flash, "only" 720p sapphire screen. 

One can snag one in the next 24 hours for $600(USD?)+shipping - after
that, $830 per phone. Expect delivery next May. Notably, it comes with a
28 day money-back guarantee.
