The same unreachable top bar to 'quickly' access certain switches and other settings and notifications as in Android, iOS... Why?

Interesting point. Actually several android launchers allow you to pick a gesture and place on screen (like a one or two finger swipe downwards on the right half of screen) to access settings and notifications. Rooted phones can give you many more ways of doing this.

Just occurred to me. For a device with a selling point that emphasizes privacy and security, maybe folks should not disclose that they bought one! Too late for me!

It looks like they've resolved the communication issues of other projects and are frequently forward facing. That's really great on their part and I wish them nothing but the best of luck.

Unfortunately I am not part of the preordered group. Not really in the mood to back anything else until it's being fully delivered. Twice burned.

https://puri.sm/posts/librem5-progress-report-19/ they write mainly about the SMS application, "Chatty"

Unfortunately it seems that the development boards are not shipped yet (they were delayed to August) as there is no mention of them.

Delays worry me given previous experience. Based on the updates when do folks think the first devices will be shipped out, if at all...

Essentially the problem is with the iMX8 target SoC, it hasn't been released yet and the release has been held back to fix an issue with the produced silicon.

So at this stage its entirely out of purism's hands as to when NXP will decide to actually release the iMX8 properly. All the work purism has done so far as been for an iMX6 development board which isn't really up to the task of running a modern smartphone experience.

Yeah, and the problem is that by the time they have sorted out the iMX8, it may no longer be up to the task of running a modern smartphone experience!
