It should be noted, sadly, that @purism said in their blog post that the #ethernet/#RJ45 port is only on the dev kit version and *won't* be in the final consumer release of the phone.

That said, apparently it will be able to get internet via USB c tethering.

@Blort @purism
well everything else wouldn't make much sense, would it? An connector is far too huge for a mobile phone..

it's already getting difficult to find a laptop with rj45 connector, as the vendors discard it to make laptops even slimmer..

Oh, it absolutely makes sense to remove it in the final phone. My toot wasn't a criticism, just making sure that no one misunderstood by hearing about *your* #Librem5 phone which *does* have an #RJ45 connector, when in general, the Librem5 phones people are going to buy won't have one.
