I was going to wait until @Purism's Librem 5 launches before adding an alternative smartphone section.
@switchingsocialWill that run LineageOS (or even Replicant, though it's a bit out of date now) or is it strictly an Android device?@Joe @Purism
@dheadshot @Joe@toot.wales @Purism
It's not Android :)
It's Linux based, like laptops can be. You can even install your own favourite version of Linux on it:
It's the first smartphone in quite a while that isn't Android or iOS.
@switchingsocialHow will the apps work? Could ordinary X software be recompiled for it or does it use a special interface like the Pocket CHIP did?@Joe @Purism
I'm not sure, I'm not a developer.
The development kits did go out at the end of last year though.
