I just don't see the appeal at that price. Yeah, sure, it's totally open...and totally lower entry level hardware for mid-tier pricing. Hard NO for me bruh. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

When I saw the price I was floored. You wont get a huge group of people going after this phone.

Agreed. The tin hat wearing folks and the well to do open source advocates, and that's it. I'd love to support purism on something, but they simply price everything far above what I'm willing to pay given the specs.

They need to go spy on the pinebook pro devs...THAT'S a group of people that know how to hit a price/feature point where something is going to be desirable.
