This is the PineTime. A companion for your Linux smartphone, and new side-project of ours. More news coming in the future...

(If you have experience with FreeRTOS or mbed, and are interested, please get in touch!)

@PINE64 I know this is silly, but posts like this kind of make me want to cancel my Librem 5 order and join you guys. I had the first PineBook though and found it difficult to sideload different OSes.

What is the primary OS be on the PinePhone? UBPorts? Or the KDE one?


@poetgrant I believe they will come from the factory with Plasma Mobile ("the KDE one").

@PINE64 hmm... this makes me wanna switch. I have had serious doubts about the Librem 5. Like super serious doubts. At least I know where I stand with the PinePhone. Hehehe... I know that for the price it won't be top of the line, but for the Librem price, I don't think it will be top of the line either.
