Hi. Thanks for the heads up. I gave it a try, but, for me, while I'm delighted someone is doing this, it is not quite ready for prime time although but it might be OK for simple documents. But in this case, office suite is fine and does a better job viewing documents as well. To do anything more complex that has, say, equations, I would rather use libre office or latex, by running ubuntu on my phone. Also, surprisingly, libre office seemed more responsive.

Lets see Android can run Firefox, Open Office, Chrome, SDL Games, emacs, Wayland/Weston, pulseaudio, emulators ported from Linux, and all sorts of other Linux utilities and uses a Linux kernel. Yet people will tell its not real Linux.

It's not real Linux. I say so because they've said so damn near enough times to make me believe it too.

It's real Linux. It's just not GNU/Linux.

Wow.

Seriously, the Nexus 5 at $349 unlocked is damn near impulse buy areas.

It is impulse buy territory. I think it should've been at least $399.

Thinking they've skimped on something here, something important.
Maybe like a proper QC system?
