@Purism I’m a developer and am curious about the Librem5. I’d like to see that state of the software before committing to the pre-order though. I understand it’s still being developed but is there documentation on building PureOS for mobile somewhere? My searches have turned up nothing useful so far.
@Purism hmm, have already an unused Linux based phone. It kinda works as a basic phone, but without any support, app store or active community it feels really strange to use it. Will Librem5 do better than a few months...?
@hansup you we can tell you in a bit more than a few months; but for now it pretty much looks like
references: librem 15 and librem 13 as well as PureOS for few years now
@Purism there's also the Cosmo Communicator but that thing is less of a smartphone and more of a pocket computer that you can also use for voice calls.
And dear me it's a big one: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-communicator
They already have experience with making the Gemini PDA but I still think yours (Purism's) will arrive before this one. And it'll probably fit in more hands
@Purism hello, librem 5 works with or without sim card ?
