Re: The new QWERTY device project

Good open communication from Chen, hoping he can turn a bad situation into a success.

The new Q-device (aka "chenphone") does seem like a better technical solution overall, with a much simpler...

Re: Russian Open Mobile development based on SFOS

I wouldn't worry about it, I don't think there's enough political "oomph" to get a "hard Brexit" through parliament. Probably not the right forum to discuss it in detail, but something like an EFTA...

Re: Necuno Mobile

Saying all the right things!

Interesting that they say the device has been in development for 2 years.

Manufactured in Finland... where? Those old Nokia factories that Turing wanted to use, or...

Anyone able to interpret that? Which companies add actual value and which ones are just holding companies?

Re: Necuno Mobile

There must be a glitch in the matrix, because I'm getting some serious deja vu from that whole Turing campaign.

Very skeptical about this, but if more than one company manages to ship a viable...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Those people are not the target demographic for this device though, are they? People who are privacy focused enough to want a fully open device don't tend to use those services.

Meanwhile, the...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

It was mostly meant as a tongue-in-cheek comment, but I wanted to point out that the goalposts are moving and if they move faster than the pace of HW development then people will be disappointed.

Re: Purism Librem Phone

Yeah, and the problem is that by the time they have sorted out the iMX8, it may no longer be up to the task of running a modern smartphone experience!

I wouldn't worry about people being rude too much, Chen has been here long enough to know how to use the ignore list... I doubt he even saw the post.

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

There is also a "lag" though, as it takes a long time for news to reach here ;)

The rest of your post made me laugh out loud, couldn't agree more. If the project is not dead, then you need to...

Re: Rostelecom investment in Jolla

Could it also be related to sentiment about the new owners and not having the benefit of the doubt any more?

And also the fact that purism's librem5 is the "new hope"?

Right, so I'm just going to say it - I have a feeling many of us are thinking it but it's an uncomfortable thought and so it's gone mostly unspoken so far.

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

Different use case though? The form factor means you would have to use it in a significantly different way to N900/Neo900 because you can't use it closed with just the touchscreen, and as far as I...
