Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

The entry price for the board would be insurmountable for me to set aside for a project with this much drama. Denying the vagueness of the version of interest implied on the original donation page is...

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

Why? You only make yourself feel worse...if there was any perceived disdain in post #2951 it's because I find your posts incredibly difficult to read and process. You don't need so many line breaks,...

Re: Purism Librem Phone

That crowdfunding campaign reeks of amateur marketing techniques that backfire on themselves, it doesn't give readers the confidence that Purism can deliver on their promises, and therefore I don't...

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

Mate, you completely missed the point. Cool, you crafted a replacement chassis piece for a N900 out of some exotic material. I'm talking about the 'full house': the rubberised plastic back cover, the...

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

There's more than that, there's the 1GHz processor which is...good enough, and there's LTE capability on top of that. And it's about as libre as mobile hardware can get, with the baseband firmware...

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

I have since learned that mer is apparently not the best option, due to being unmaintained and with old packages. I would port OBSD to GTA04 if I could, but I have no Freerunner. As long as the...

Re: interesting Neo900 audio thoughts/ideas

I thought the whole point of this project was to avoid binary blobs that ran in the OS, and network firmware that communicated with the CPU. Are you saying that the soundcard needs binary firmware to...

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

BTW, surely 'Freemo' (after 'Maemo') is a better name for Mer+Hildon than 'NeoFremantle'.

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

Mate, up until Marshmallow, Android could run on 512MB RAM. That's less than the latest version of iOS was compiled for at that point. It's gapps that bogs down the system. Yes, there are countless...

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

Fremantle isn't completely open source though, and probably never will be. Android won the battle for developer participation, which means it has had almost a decade's worth of spit, polish and...

Re: Neo900 - finally a successor of N900

If I decided to acquire a neo900 board for myself (I'd obtain an N900 chassis in adv., of course), I would be perfectly happy running a FOSS Android ROM, perhaps Replicant, sans gapps. It would be...

Re: [WTB] Keira black TOH

I got a new one because I was stupid enough to peel off the ambiance sticker on the back, thinking that the pins on the back of the Jolla weren't picking it up and I had to move it. Later I realised...

Re: [WTB] Keira black TOH

I got one from the Jolla shop last month. If you keep an eye on them regularly they can still be had but their stocks don't last.

Re: If Jolla servers shut down...

Losing the repos and store isn't too big a deal as many apps have Github pages and/or are also available on Openrepos. I have made a list of all the apps I've got, with their related links elsewhere,...

Re: The Future of Jolla's Tablet

Techcrunch got it very wrong. Mozilla aren't discontinuing Firefox OS for phones, they are just refocusing the platform on other device categories (e.g smart TVs).

Re: The Future of Jolla's Tablet

I'm sitting here feeling smug that I own a Jolla phone but I never ordered a Tablet. I smelt a rat when it came out on pre-order and I wanted to wait until the company started shipping them. But now...

Re: Jolla 2 expectations

Given that we're most likely to see a new phone later this year, the upgrades I can expect will be mostly internal (a more powerful SOC, 2GB RAM, 720p screen, possibly bigger internal memory). I...
