Right before I would get to sleep, I've noticed that Purism has finally reached their crowdfunding goals to create a fully open, fully private Linux smartphone. I congratulated them on Mastodon. mstdn.jp At the moment of typing (Tuesday morning), they've released a presser: Purism Meets Its $1.5 Million Goal for Security Focused Librem 5 Smartphone One Week After Surging Past the 50% Mark – Purism All the details and stuff can be found here: Librem 5 – A Security and Privacy Focused Phone – Purism The phone runs on PureOS with either Gnome or KDE (your choice), but you can also install most other Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, Arch, Fedora, OpenSUSE, etc. It comes with hardware kill switches for Bluetooth, WiFi, Baseband, camera, microphone, etc. So, anyone looking forward?
