Librem 5 Mass Production Phone Has Begun Shipping

"Shipping the Librem 5 has been an immense multi-year developmental effort. It is the culmination of people’s desire to see an alternative to Android and iOS..."

@purism only $2000 for a phone? Are you smoking crack? Pinephone is a fraction of that price and is doing more for the FOSS community by making hardware available to, you know, regular people.

At least Jesse James had a horse!

@jeremiah @purism $2,000 for one made in the US. ~750 for a normal one. Expensive but attainable.

@Phaserune @purism ridiculously expensive, and an IQ test that one fails if one spends $750 on a phone.


@jeremiah @Phaserune @purism or someone who understands that it takes more than hardware to create a viable phone. PinePhone gets to slurp up the software effort paid for by Purism for the Librem 5, and relies on community for the rest. The result is a phone that's cheap but not yet useful as a daily driver. They both fill a need. Those who can afford to, help to drive the ecosystem forward. Those who can't still have the low end option.
