Wasn't the Librem5 a mobile phone!? Or will this electronic stuff be one?


It's a phone, yeah, this is a dev board that they started shipping, which is essentially the PCB + components of the final phone, without the case etc. It's for early app development etc. but the fact that it's shipping means we're not that far off from the end-customer thing.

@MatejLach Now just *squish* it smaller and get it all into a phone.

@MatejLach cool. is that the dev board they sent out recently? i wish i had any idea of programming. i'd really like to help.

hopefully they will keep the spring date for sending out the phones. and hopefully it can run the signal messenger...

@choboDOC Yeah, it's the dev board.

I hope we get a Signal app too!

Hi there! I am a free software developer. I enjoy working on useful software, as well as advocating for software freedom and the use of open standards, promoting data ownership, decentralization and privacy. If this is important to you, I may be worth following. If you like Go, Rust, or Swift, it may be worth following me as well. Besides computing, I enjoy metal, a good read and occasionally some gaming, (not much time for that these days).
