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

Not sure why every single crowdfunding campaign fails at communication, though. One or two short updates each week would do the trick, I think.



Heh.
Let's hope that isn't the case!

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

Does anyone know what's up with the Gemini? They are not responding to any comments on IGG + they haven't posted any significant updates for a while. :(

Re: Anyone still using N900: What apps do you need/want?

I may use the N900 once again, if it had a usable web browser.

Re: GPW Win 2

Ok, but without those ugly joysticks and stuff, this would have been a very cool device, even better than the Pocket. But as-is, it's just too ugly and bulky.

Do you know why they chose not to put the screen in the center? It kinda looks a little weird.

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

I don't have a problem with libhybris.
If that's what it takes to get it working decently.

Re: Purism Librem Phone

True, but the difference is that nobody else uses those pieces of software, so they are on their own when it comes to weeding out the bugs in there.

On the other hand, Gnome is used by a huge...

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

That's very nice to hear!



Do you know which are the problematic part? Ie. what works on the mainline kernel and what doesn't?

Re: Purism Librem Phone

I think they deliberately overpriced it.
So even if the road is bumpy, they should have enough money to get through the tight spots.

Plus (unlike Jolla), they are not developing an entire OS on...

Re: Should I buy new N810 ten years after release?

When my N900 was under repair (In 2011), I used an N810 for two weeks (borrowed from uni department). It was a lovely device, which was kind of OK for some of the stuff I would want, but...

Why do you think it is bloated? What exactly is bloated?

AFAIK their OS runs Gnome 3 by default. Is it bloated? I don't know, depends on who you ask, but I've seen it running fine on much weaker...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

I don't thing the chipset matters that much in this case. Even 2013 hardware can run a smooth GUI with okay-ish performance.

The main thing here is whether or not they manage to make it happen...

Re: [WIP] Fremantle GTK3 Experiment
