This is pretty cool. Now there's at least one viable alternative phone I can buy if my current one reaches its end-of-life. I'm still holding out hope for the #PinePhone and other #nix based smartphones. Getting a convergent Linux onto smartphones that can serve as a daily driver would be killer. But until then it's great that there's a choice that isn't a giant Silicon Valley silo.
