Ubuntu Edge will work on LTE networks, Canonical have confirmed.
The Edge will support LTE standard frequencies and offer multi-band support for those using the handset in other countries.
American readers who have backed the Edge crowd-funding campaign will be relieved as it means the Edge will work on Verizon and Sprint.
If funded the Ubuntu Edge should be rolling off production lines around the same time as this switch – so it’s nice timing!
GSM & 3G Supported, Too
Of course, the Edge won’t be limited to only LTE.
If you’re in a non-LTE area, or on a non-LTE plan you have no need to worry: the carrier-unlocked Edge will support GSM and 3G network services on a range of frequencies.
Canonical are crowd-sourcing $32 million to fund the development and production of Ubuntu Edge – a high-end ‘superphone’ that doubles up as a PC when connected to a monitor.
