So, no Fairphone 3, and Fairphone 2 released in 2015. Looks like I will need to reconsider my mobile strategy. Eh.
@flexbit yeah, but the dates are unclear, and so is whether or not it will have a way of running Android apps. Sadly, I rely on Signal heavily and I need to take this into account. :(
@tmy please let me subtoot myself, from this very thread no less: https://mastodon.social/@rysiek/100662929381922760
@rysiek Sorry, can't follow that link, but I suppose you have already considered sailfish, then :)
@rysiek 200 € again, at least. Hm.
(I used a Jolla phone before I went Nexus with custom ROMs/Tor/Copperhead …)
Unfortunately, you are right. The smartphone market is helt hostage by vendors and faux open source developers like Google.
Right now - smartphone hardware is far from open. Way too much nastyness going on for a small party of enlightened spirits to change this. When you think of it - this is madness and needs to change - like yesterday.
Close eye also still on /e/, formerly known as eelo:
Nice! Thanks for the share. Doubt I am going to use it though - as it doesn't honor my security model. At least, not with the info they made public right now.
They support devices that are EOL - thus receiving no firmware updates. In my opinion, security allows the enforcement of privacy. A comprimised phone would mean comprimised data - thus no privacy.
Am going to keep an eye on 'em - for sure 😉
