Does it have lights? Switches? We may be able to help!

Pinephone

Post by Space Ghost »

I'll dispense with the coyness about this: anybody know about these? An explanation: it's basically the Linux phone...

Tech Republic wrote a review that was basically an extended whine. I mean, yes, this is for developers, they state it outright. This is Linux. If that is not you, why have a snit about it? This is like saying you didn't enjoy Star Trek because it wasn't down-to-earth enough for you. I'm looking for a review that shows more understanding about the product.

All day long, I'm just a-rightin' wrongs,
And makin' evil villains miser'ble!

It is worth pointing out that if you buy this model, it will not come with an OS installed. You'll have to do that yourself. The trade-off in this is that the OS is free (in both the sense of free beer and free speech).

More on the Pinephone. I have to admit that this does not really look ready for prime time. And yes, you will need Gemini to read the review. gemini://tanelorn.city/~vidak/pinephone ... iew.gemini
