A recent article on a big tech news site included this phrase:
"[...] Linux phones like the PinePhone, [...]are full of closed-source firmware from non-open components"
We'd like to clear the record: The #PinePhone has two blobs -- neither runs on the main SoC: One loaded to WiFi/BT module, other enclosed within the cell modem. In the modern world of tech, both blobs are unavoidable.
For an overview from someone with deep knowledge of both the PinePhone and Librem 5: https://tuxphones.com/yet-another-librem-5-and-pinephone-linux-smartphone-comparison/

Here is a Delta Chat talk from end December at #36c3 -- it discusses Delta Chat's unique messenger-approach, its use of the e-mail server network, its resilience against internet shutdowns, the crypto engine rPGP, and then tons of Q&A from the audience https://media.ccc.de/v/36c3-oio-154-delta-chat-e-mail-based-messaging-the-rustocalypse-and-ux-driven-approach-ybti-wefixthenet-session-#t=1169
