@martin huh is this a FLOSS phone kind of thing?

s2g im so close to going full RMS and getting some shit like this

@anna it's indeed , the is based on

see product page puri.sm/products/librem-5/

but it's not ready yet, shipping is sched for april...
just received a dev kit today...

@martin def gonna keep an eye on this, id love to eventually move to this kind of thing.

i think the only issue would be random android/ios only apps to connect with things there is no web equivalent for, and shit like gamezzz which is why it'd be nice i think if there was an option for an android compatibility layer or vm you could wall off and give hooks to faked/null data to avoid the data harvesting techniques they use

@anna they had a goal, which lets you run apps in ... but i'm not sure if that goal was accomplished..? i'd doubt that, as it was pretty high...

@martin it'd be the thing you'd need to get people who haven't gone full Fuck Computers i think, much like we still need wine for many people to use a gnu/linux based desktop environment to run That One App

@anna @martin I would be ecstatic to have a phone that could run WhatsApp with a jailed copy of it's own contacts without accessing my actual system contacts.

This way I could only let Facebook know about the contracts I'd allow it to know about.


The gaol was not raised but some people runs anbox on UBports phone.
