In my way to @fosdem now. And of courses I boarded my bus using the PinePhone running postmarketOS and Plasma Mobile using KDE Itinerary! So awesome!
A recent article on a big tech news site included this phrase:
"[...] Linux phones like the PinePhone, [...]are full of closed-source firmware from non-open components"
We'd like to clear the record: The #PinePhone has two blobs -- neither runs on the main SoC: One loaded to WiFi/BT module, other enclosed within the cell modem. In the modern world of tech, both blobs are unavoidable.

"CutiePi Shell" is a new, open-source #Qt UI for mobile devices
The #PinePhone is now shipping!
"There are a great many aspects of the phone that have been changed, improved upon and polished since the dev phones [...] such as tweaks to the antenna layout, PCB improvements and [...] aesthetical changes. [...] LCD and digitizer are sealed, so there is virtually no gap between the glass and the screen. The LCD used is also pitch black when the device is turned off as opposed to grey-ish or silver."
