A couple people have asked me about this, but I don’t see any good-quality information about it. Frankly, it seems like a gimmicky scam trying to profit off of people’s justified but uninformed fears about data privacy and censorship. I’m guessing the operating system will just be reskinned android? It doesn’t seem to offer anything additional versus a normal phone with LineageOS+Fdroid+TorBrowser.
(Please, start a different thread if you want to start a lengthy back-and-forth about the republican-vs-democrat political dynamic of the phone. The backers of the phone do have a clear slant in the context of American politics. I am just interested in the technical attributes and capabilities of the phone.)
