VICE: The PinePhone Is an Open-Source, Community Developed iOS and Android Competitor

The device runs on a version of Linux modified by a community of developers and is designed to last 10 years.


@tuxdevices Designed to last ten years? Do they have an active spare parts management, or how is that supposed to work?

@jmehne @tuxdevices yeah that is about PostMarketOS, but maybe the PinePhone too, i dunno.

The article could separate a bit more, it is a project that is basically trying to run on phones more generally,(it already boots in >200 phones, though usually many features missing ) and make them more like PCs, in terms of user control.

@jmehne @tuxdevices Kind of. @PINE64 does sell spare replacement parts for the #Pinephone such as battery, screws, display... etc in their store:
