My talk about Linux on Mobile on #fosdem2020 with Merlijn Wajer from Maemo Leste is now online!
My #pinephone is going through an import procedure (awaiting customs clearance).
Pine64 Will Sell Hard Shell Cases for the #PinePhone 👍 https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2020/02/pinephone-hard-case
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.

Great, the #pinephone is coming my way 😀
The first Community Update of 2020 is here!
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 https://fam-ribbers.com/2019/12/28/State-of-Linux-on-mobile-and-common-misconceptions.html 😄
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
