@cybette you always top any list as far as im concerned hehe.
I asked myself: Is the #Nokia N9 with #MeeGo still useable?
Sure, if you want something for music (hell! get the 64gb version if you can!), (outdated) navigation/maps, calls, simple instant messageing (Telegram, XMPP, SMS). With mails, calDAV and Web in general,.. well, it depends on the server. Since MeeGo doesn't support TLSv1.3 it could be difficult to connect to modern servers.
I really like this small little device! We need a modern phone in this size (with a lean OS!). @PINE64 ?! :)

A “vehicle forensics kit” can reveal where you’ve driven, what doors you opened, and who your friends are. If only @purism had the manpower to also tackle car software.

@linmob knows how to endorse the scene: "Do you want to pay for haircuts your whole life? Think of the money you can save if you pull your hair out early... with Mobile Linux™!" 😄
Great two hour podcast episode of the last ~20 years (!) of mobile Linux including recent developments. Enjoyed it a lot!

To carry a smartphone from big tech is now to carry a passive surveillance device on your person. You are paying a thousand dollars to have your privacy violated. its why you should choose a device from @purism as you dont have to trust purism at all you can trust the code as it should be (i do trust purism by the way but just saying). so stay away from all things google and the all seeing i. https://edwardsnowden.substack.com/p/all-seeing-i

Pine64: PinePhone Pro.
A new flagship Linux smartphone!
A more polished Linux smartphone powered by a Rockchip hexa-core 1.5GHz SoC, 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, 128GB of eMMC storage, 13MP / 5MP cameras +a Corning Gorilla Glass 4 display.
The default OS is Manjaro Linux / KDE Plasma Mobile, but expect support by most of the operating systems already available for the original PinePhone.
What do YOU think? Will you pre-order?
I like photography cycling and all things FOSS and decentralized and especially all things Analog and use a LightPhone 2 and PineBook Pro laptop combo no smartphone
