Better to quote chen! He has all the info. I’m just a random potential customer for QP if it will be real, available and for sale.

Anyone knows if jolla is working with/for/against this Qphone?
Dave, If you are interested in aliens that have gone "Crazy Eddie", read the Mote in God's Eye by Niven and Pournelle. Or at least read the Wikipedia description, which is not to long but has the main ideas.

Couldn’t find any crazy Eddie in the coDominium universe. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist an crazy Eddie in that universe though.

Just because I couldn’t find the Qphone in our universe doesn’t mean it’s not in available I guess.
We just have to wait until l Q4...and Then...And Then...Aaaaad theeen...

Lets be honest here, the fact that Dave999 was right is WORSE than the fact it was a scam (And I was the first backer of the Youyota IGG 'offering')

I got the frikkin' phone back
It had no sim in it so i figured it was gone for good.
Also figuring the thief was maybe just broke af for snatching such an obviously old device, i came up with a kind of last resort social hack that worked to my utter astonishment.
I wrote a letter to the thief placing it on the night-drawer were i last remembered to have seen my dear nexus.
Asking him/her to return it as it would be of no real use in resale and explaining the nature of the software it runs and its sentimental value in few sentences. I attached my usual 20€ tip for the cleaning staff upfront.
The letter disappeared without exchange for the phone and i thought i am the greatest idiot of all time the whole Thursday evening, for even throwing money after the thief.
The surprise came when checking out of the hotel yesterday morning. "Someone" had placed the nexus in Lost+Found at the reception and thankfully the staff correctly remembered i reported missing one on tuesday.

Sooo, i still ask myself did i just stupidly loose it myself (somewhee else int the hotel) and not find it (while thoroughly searching the whole wednesday evening) in the hotel room, cleaning staff simply found it and coincidentally put it into L+F the right time?
Yeah, not 100% ruled out that it went down a little different than i "figure" above, but i am quite certain to not have moved the phone from the drawer as i strictly brought it as an alarm clock to wake me up at 5.
Any way OT solved, faith in humanity restored. Sry 4 the length.

naw....
you just lost it...
If you brought it with you to wake yourself ....as an alarm..
the natural thing would be NOT to put it back into a drawer ...close it...and forget about it ...once you hit the alarm...
That is much too complex an act for a waking person to contemplate...
Sooo..
you lost it...
set it down somewhere ..
and staff prolly saw it and put it in lost and found...

Don't fret mscion..
Either way ...your disappointment and faith in humanity are equally balanced ...
either a thief took the phone and returned it...
took the money to boot ...too...that was meant for the cleaning staff...I have no doubt..
OR it WAS the cleaning staff that took it in the first place...
OR you left it somewhere else ...setting it down in the hotel...
and someone returned it...staff or guest...

faith and disappointment in humanity ....should actually cancel each other out anyway...there are simply too many people with sooo many motivations, needs and agendas...
and when it comes to the basest level of taking another's belongings..
rarely does a person who DOESN'T need the money ...steal.
Someone who takes something usually sees "risk"...and "need" tends to cancel out the risk of being caught...
So ..I hardly can put such folks in the category of disappointment..
If someone did intend to take it ...they needed the money....

Either / Or ...
its all good...I think..
and it came out well in the end...
