The Librem 5 smartphone -- running GNU/Linux -- is "confirmed for Q3 product shipping."
@purism No that the phone is (hopefully) near to be ready, I would really like to have the money to buy one...
@purism Lately there seema to be a lot happening in the market for mobile operating systems, and even though android has a somewhat open base, it seems the stranglehold google has over it makes an alternative more and more necessary.
I really hope this takes off, even if its just for using matrix at first.
@vancha @purism it will initially be able to send SMS, phone calls, XMPP, and Web. There are also a few devs making apps for it before the release. I am not sure if Matrix will actually ship with the device. Purism could probably tell you more. But I have confirmed in the Matrix room that the SMS app will have XMPP integrated from the start.
