something tells me that that back cover holds a few misteries of it’s own in order to have a good reception. maybe Purism opted for a slit in order to circumvent the blocking-of signal … all speculation so far (positive or negative alike)
Connect antenna to metal outer frame, connect metal outer frame to hand, have human sized antenna, this is how rf works right
Years ago I got sciatica from an improperly balanced duty belt (it felt like my whole outer thigh was on fire!). We don’t think about it, but the little things add up and a few grams in the wrong place can make a big difference !
Thats what I’m talkin bout . Just solder wire to the antenna then same on the cover side !!
Yes of course, good point, but this year I already forgot (have to do something with my age) twice to take my wallet with me because it is very light (and my car very fast … just kidding) but something like that should not happen with my Librem 5 because comparing this phone, if allowed, with the heavyweight division, like in boxing, it looks great to me and one of the additional reasons (having had some hand-gloves size 10 that were still to small) to look forward to it, carrying with me everything privacy/necessary related in a pocket-size.
i don’t like to act as an antenna but here i am …
This is why I didn’t put Evergreen on my batch list; I was worried it would have an FCC and CE logo.
It depends. I usually walk around with heavy tools in four pockets. As long as L5 is not heavier than 1 kg it does not make much difference to me :-).
I wonder if the selfie cam can be removed .
.Where is that from?
It’s a APNG I made from pictures generated by Purism on their repo, to illustrate future news and shop I suppose?
Indeed. A year ago, when the new website launched, a similar animation was already in place for a brief period:
Currently it’s only active on the laptop product pages: https://puri.sm/products/librem-15/
Yes, I also made my own animation at this time:
Good work! Can you please link to them?
This animation features buttons on the right edge, which I hadn’t noticed in the photos before. (They are there though.) I’d agree with the speculation in “Librem 5 — Bits n Pieces” that the 10 pin connector is probably where these connect to the PCB.
I was puzzled by the long, thin protrusion near the kill switches until I realised it was probably the SIM/SD holder.
If care is taken to properly place and balance items, I’m in the same boat I was on 12 hour shifts at the time and continuously wearing my ( stupidly unbalanced) chandelier of gear
two would make it perfectly balanced then no ?
The models clearly exist, but no 3D models have been released yet . I asked about them a while ago.
