PinePhone, a new and upcoming mobile Linux project
Discovered the PinePhone on posts across the fediverse, and I am intrigued by it.
I consider the current two major players situation a real problem -- not only due to Privacy and huge Security concerns, but also for the lack of choices we end up with.
I have used a variety of systems in the past. Miss many of them, which were great products, in terms of Design, features, creative User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI).
The best don't necessarily win. Witnessed by the numerous examples of superior ones being left behind and to the memories of their orphaned users.
What is PinePhone?
"An Open Source Smart Phone Supported by All Major Linux Phone Projects
Perhaps you’re in a line of work where security is a must, or a hard-core Linux enthusiast, or perhaps you’ve just got enough of Android and iOS and you’re ready for something else – the PinePhone may be the next Phone for you. Powered by the same Quad-Core ARM Cortex A53 64-Bit SOC used in our popular PINE A64 Single Board Computer, the PinePhone runs mainline Linux as well as anything else you’ll get it to run.
The purpose of the PinePhone isn’t only to deliver a functioning Linux phone to end-users, but also to actively create a market for such a device, as well as to support existing and well established Linux-on-Phone projects. All major Linux Phone-oriented projects, as well as other FOSS OS’, are represented on the PinePhone and developers work together on our platform to bring support this this community driven device. "
