I hope Purism manages to succeed with mobiles now that it has gained traction with its notebooks. This would be the top contender for my next device if finances allow it when that time comes for replacement (which is a couple years away, hence my hope they see enough success to last)...

@msh 1) it's very good thing their doing 2) it's GNOME, so.. hmmmm

@charlag They aren't perfect but they are the closest thing to it that actually ships. The switches to physically disconnect camera and mic are very good.

Plus it can be whatever you want it to be...it is a mobile computer in the best tradition of personal computers in that you can install the OS of your choice should you not like the default. Perhaps that will help it succeed where others have not (like Ubuntu, Sailfish etc which only offered devices that officially supported their own OS)
