@purism Well done guys!
@purism super hyped 🤩
Yay! Can't wait to get mine . Are the cases plastic or metal? Its a bit hard to tell.
@RandomPhoton they are metal, glad you are excited to get yours :)
Thanks for the confirmation! And yup, can't wait haha. Thanks for all the hard work!
@purism preordered mine, but I'm totally ignorant of linux, what kind of learning curve am I looking at going from a galaxy s5 to this?
Also, do yo'll make laptops or tablets?
@soothsayer This will be a great way to experience a full Linux system, the phone experience is built for everyone and it will be much simpler and easier to find your way around than on any Android phone. It also is a complete computer, plug it into a monitor, keyboard and mouse and you can edit spreadsheets, do your work, play games and more using desktop Linux apps on your phone :) Hope that helps!
@purism Good, because I'm a complete noob to linux, and not particularly techie inclined anyway.
@purism yess! So exciting! 😃 congrats to everyone involved in this wonderful project!
Awesome! I'm glad you didn't cut corners just to make it super thin (like /some/ manufacturers!)
If I ever need a smartphone, I'll know where to go!
@purism great news! Seems like only a matter weeks before we can at least feast our eyes on video's of the device in action. I was late so I'll have to wait a bit longer to get hands-on. Super excited.
@purism ooohhhhh gimme gimme gimme :D
Can't wait to get my hands on one!!!
@purism Not going to lie, the GNOME is looking good on mobile. Also, damn that phone is thiic.
@purism Thank you so much for all your hard work! I hope I can hold it in my hands one day!
@purism *punishing the mail check button*
@purism 🤟 🖖
@purism Hello. Well done.
Could you do a close 360°?
@purism shame on me! I forgot to say please 😕
@purism Cannot wait to get my hands on it!
@purism Terminal and Text Editor apps shipped by default - looks like an invitation to write custom scripts :)
@purism does the actual phone support full OpenGL, or just ES?
Finally! Here's my Blackberry's alternate
Available in USA?
@tedpoppke yes, also available globally shipped from USA.
Definitely a hot candodate for being my next phone
I read today about it, but I see a very big problem. I have a handful Android-Apps, which I need every day (for example Threema).
And I think it needs years that the most necessary apps are on pureOS too. To reach the mass of people there would be the way, to add a ligth pure version of android too on the phone. So people can use a few android apps till there is a pureOS-version of it. I think this is a necessary intermediate step.
It would be my dream to have this secure phone and OS, but this way it´s not practicable and not usable in everyday life.
