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 somewhere new?

Third part of the blog: https://necunos.com/blog/securing-th...-mobile-part3/

We didn’t reinvent the wheel when starting with operating system for our open and secure mobile device. We are using Linux as our kernel and our goal is to have mainline always running on our device. We have concentrated on the LTS 4.14 version. In our own system we have used components from known embedded and phone projects. ‘Our’ operating system will be opensource, it did come from the community and we want to give back to the community. More about our operating system will follow with official announcements.

4 seconds? Great. My phone usually has uptimes best expressed in months (only need to reboot to update the OS ), so I actually I don't really care.

Also, those 4 seconds, does that include middleware and services? (Do those even exists on their platform yet?)

From on their blog (where's the Atom/RSS feed?) it looks like they have very little to show for on the software side. They only mention Linux, and the kernel version they're using. The rest is basically a plea for help:

That is why we invite all (mobile) FOSS enthusiasts and communities to join us and participate in this mission of providing a truly open mobile ecosystem.
Meh. Good intentions perhaps, and they do apparently have an actually hardware part running, but that isn't enough to get me excited.

[Edit] Hmm, that hardware isn't theirs? See this and that...

I did see those devices, and yeah, might be the same hardware.But PriveOS isnt Open Source.

It wasn't there before when I first looked, they have added it later. Also, the place where they should have put that link, is in the head of the HTML, so the RSS-icon in the web browser lights up, so I don't have to search for the link. They haven't done so.

Well, they claim:

Operating System: PriveOS™
Source code visibility: 100%
Ok, visibility != open source, but they do mention open source in other parts. I guess it's vague at best.

Next part of the blog, Phone connectivity and its backdoors: https://necunos.com/blog/phone-conne...its-backdoors/

Surprise! It is not a phone. Or at least it does not have cellular modem.

I find it interesting no one here bothered to comment on this post from one week end ago, despites having had a lot of comments at the start when not much was known.

You mean, the off-topic discussions?
