USB bus may be more power hungry, but it's also more standard and obviously more secure (not sharing memory between modem and other things). Sizing of USB sticks is an issue, yes. I would have hoped that they are small enough to hide completely inside USB port, but it may be more difficult for antenna-equipped USB modems. Antenna reception may be challenging, too.

Edit: Ben Nanonote is fairly close to 100% FOSS, I reckon.

I very much agree with Jolla's old motto:

The world doesn't need a new smartphone, it needs a new way of thinking.
Unfortunately, at the end what they delivered was just a new smartphone.

It was a start. However what's listed in this thread is a recipe for how to become a niche instantly and a memory even quicker.

Why is it so that my son wants specifically Air Jordan shoes and not the arguably same quality generic label foorwear from supermarket?

Why is it that my wife is (not so) patientently waiting for the HMD Nokia 9 launch before purchasing a new phone even as her current device is flaking off the seams...
Yes. Brand is definitely an important factor in purchase decisions. I mean, I could bring you a phone called 'Pononi' and tell you that it has good specs. You will be skeptical at first but if I tell you former employees of Nokia were involved in it manufacture then may be you might give it a chance.

I would love to be able to own an iphone like all my daughters friends who rightfully bully her for not being available on vital apple services like "find my friend" and imessage.
(AT THE AGE OF 9 YEARS FF****S)
Also apple being the forefront of openness, them sticking with their founding principles since day one and how closely they listen to their userbase makes it irresistible to offer my familys soul on steves altar and join that elite religion one day.
For different reasons i can not afford all of this, but i will never give up my dream.
meaning: i really really do not like the current attitude of both, the company and most of its customers
Too you a warm welcome and thanks for joining talk.maemo, the place where all but one question are taken serious
