The linux phone. ‘The’ and ‘linux’ meaning the one wireless phone that embraces the true meaning behind F/OSS and living linux in our everyday life. I’m not talking about a wireless phone that gives linux developers a woody just because of what they might be able to run on a tiny device carried around in a pocket.
I’m talking about a tiny device that just works; unencumbered by so-called ‘intellectual propery’ legaleze and just so happens to run 100% F/OSS. Specifically Linux. I am talking about a modern wireless phone that can compete with Smartphones, iPhones, Blackberry’s, and other popular wireless communication gadgets. One with all the bells and whistles of the latest offerings from AT & T, Sprint, Orange, T-Mobile, Fido, Rodgers, Vodaphone and many others.
It should be so complete and easy to use that the simple everyday consumer wouldn’t have a clue, or even care, that it was running on Linux.
Does it exist? Read on and maybe we will find out …
