Re: Is it helpfull for us? Kali Linux now available for download from Microsoft Store

Sorry for being late to the party and side-tracking a bit by (kinda) answering the OP :p

Re: Gemini PDA (the return of the Psion Series 5MX)

The fact that it is built towards being an Android device is the elephant in the matchbox when it comes to worries :rolleyes:

Re: Gemini PDA (the return of the Psion Series 5MX)

And I am curious/worried (mostly the latter) about the BIOS.
I suspect some proprietary binary blob, but couldn't find/search properly on that subject.

That's all well and good, but I, for one, am waiting on Chen's phone because I want an Linux-ish OS (which would happen to not be from any of the GAFAs) phone with a hardware keyboard.

Re: The new QWERTY device project

Don't worry, you took it too seriously and didn't get the subtleties. It's OK.
To be fair, that was a bit far-fetched :D

So: post #666, Dave999, upside down... need I say more ? :rolleyes:

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Fixed it for you.

That's the reason *I* don't go anywhere near Android... not the perfs (or lack thereof).

Yes, I read that, but you know... too many weeks without anything and we're getting dangerously close to Neo900 territory.

Re: [Live] Youyota 2-in-1 Tablet

Sorry (and thanks), I missed your answer.

No public terminal here, my question about USB was merely related to the fact that I don't do wifi.

Re: The new QWERTY device project

However easily shielded it can be, tritium is still banned in quite a few countries.
I doubt trying to circumvent those bans to save a bit of battery power is worth the legal hassle.

Re: What have former N900 owners moved to?

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

While I'm also not too fond of the screen when it comes to thumbing, for the rest I definitely stand in the I-can-wait-as-long-as-it-takes corner.

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

I have different feelings about the screen.
While the N900 screen could be a tad bigger, I have no interest whatsoever in anything bigger than 4".
I would even draw my limit at the N9's size, which...

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

The problem is that nowadays most people want the shinies.
They want a phone that looks good (according to them), and that's it.
They don't care what's inside as long as it can run their dumb games...
