Pinephone unboxing 

Show thread

Back from . I've hold a real in my hands. WOW! I really like it. Hope to receive mine soon.

And as a bonus, @PINE64 has given me a free pinephone protection case.

War eben bei @PINE64 auf der #FOSDEM:
Die Qualität des #PinePhone hat mich echt überrascht. Das Display ist super und die Taster an der Seite haben einen angenehmen Druckpunkt. Es ist etwas groß für mich, aber mit @ubports und einer kleinen Tastatur definitiv als mobiles SSH Terminal nutzbar.

Because my has not arrived yet, I'll go to tomorrow, hoping that I can hold a pinephone for a while at the @PINE64 stand 😉

A recent article on a big tech news site included this phrase:

"[...] Linux phones like the PinePhone, [...]are full of closed-source firmware from non-open components"

We'd like to clear the record: The #PinePhone has two blobs -- neither runs on the main SoC: One loaded to WiFi/BT module, other enclosed within the cell modem. In the modern world of tech, both blobs are unavoidable.

Well I consider wordpress as the "Windows but for web"

Most used = Most bloated = most exploited

New #PinePhone pictures from TL.

According to TL, the phone will come with a red color 5V-3A USB-A to USB-C cable, no power adapter (you already owned one).

They are preparing to dispatch out the "BraveHeart" PinePhone on January 13, assume PinePhone production goes smooth.

Lately I've seen some incorrect statements and facts about Linux on mobile being thrown around, and I decided to write a blog post to give some more correct info. Please give it a read fam-ribbers.com/2019/12/28/Sta 😄

If you see any mistakes I've made, please correct me!

Even though the magazine folded months ago, something about the Linux Journal website going offline makes everything seem so much more final. #RIPlinuxjournal
