Perhaps, it could be enough to link to the list of apps in wiki:
It also depends on what qualifies as perfectly fine
The moment I lift my finger after scrolling the view, Gnome Calendar opens a
Create new event dialog on my Dogwood phone. In general, there’s also the problem with buttons being too small. But that is to be expected, of course, until Calendar is ported to use libhandy.
I agree that Gnome Calendar is in fact usable despite this.
Edit to add reference to this thread:
I’m stealing this.
@Caliga, This chart needs to be updated. I recommend making these changes:
Phosh, Phoc, Squeekboard, Kings Cross
Phosh, Phoc, Chatty, Calls, libhandy, feedbackd, haegtesse, wys
Best to remove Kings Cross, since Zander Brown isn’t a Purism employee (although new software which was developed starting in April 2019) and Squeekboard, since it is based on Eekboard.
- video out (DisplayPort)
- video out (HDMI) | planned upgrade: mainline HDMI
- video out (DisplayPort) | Can use HDMI monitors with a USB-C to HDMI cable
Remove the “video out (HDMI)” because the industry has not adopted the HDMI alt-mode over USB-C standard and no cell phone on the market supports it.

Purism gave Birch and Dogwood to postmarketOS for porting work.

Change status of “Runs Plasma Mobile” to “( )”
Purism’s work on the Plasma Mobile port stopped when Bob Ham left Purism, but it should be possible to use Plasma Mobile through postmarketOS port, which needs verification.

…and phoc, since it’s based on rootston? Both squeekboard and phoc evolved way beyond their initial codebases (and squeekboard even got its parts rewritten into a different language), the projects they were initially based on are just technical details at this point.
Did it? It works on postmarketOS. Only packaging Plasma Mobile on PureOS amber-phone stalled (long time ago already), because Debian Buster is a way too old base to reasonably support PlaMo. It may be within the reach for byzantium though.
I’m using it daily on my Librem 5 (via flatpak).
The battery wouldn’t take charging this fast well - that’s the maximum power the device will ever negotiate from the charger, and that power then gets split into charging and operating (and in practice I doubt that it would ever draw 24W, that’s quite a lot - 10W is usually already enough to charge at full speed while the phone is in use).
high resolution screen | ~220 DPI, 720x1440
high resolution screen | 282 DPI, 720x1440
This gets it closer to 300 DPI, which Apple defined as the minimum for its “Retina Display”.
Then it should be:
(Developed Completely New Software):
Phosh, Chatty, Calls, libhandy, feedbackd, haegtesse, wys
(Developed New Software):
Phosh, Phoc, Squeekboard, Chatty, Calls, libhandy, feedbackd, haegtesse, wys
If Plasma Mobile is verified to work on the postmarketOS port for the Librem 5, then change to:
| Runs Plasma Mobile | using the postmarketOS port
Also change to:
| Collaboration KDE | support for Qt/KDE apps added to Phosh, and can use Plasma Mobile with postmarketOS
OK, then use:

On modem related news
We have a new modem option to announce, the very coveted T1 modem variant to cover Australia an the South East Asia region. More information bellow.
@Caliga I know you had many such requests, but: can you update the post with this info?
Not sure in which way it should be included - do you mean “it is possible to update all remaining binary blobs” or “we hope to eventually free as much of these firmwares as possible”? Also, you probably rather meant Kyle’s earlier response: !?
The promise is
we [will] document the process in our Librem 5 developer docs at some point, when it’s relevant (such as when there’s an update to apply)
In other words, Purism should explain how to update proprietary firmware for Wi-Fi and modem at some point (at least when new firmware is available). The original question was about the proprietary firmware in RAM, so that firmware may also be updatable at some point I guess.
My comment is probably a bit clumsy but :
you’re going from someone who says “I would expect” to “The promise is”
Isn’t it a bit jumping on conclusion ?
it doesn’t feel like a formal promise
You would be right if you only considered this comment without the context. But the context is what quoted by @Caliga above:
Without a possibility to update firmware, you can end up with an insecure device if any bugs are found in it. Thus even a promise of a “secure” device would not be fulfilled in such case.
People may be interested in reading my comment on Hacker News about the security of firmware blobs, and why I think Purism has the right strategy for achieving change:
@Caliga: Thanks again for all the work on this!
One question regarding the FCC / CE Certifications: There was a confirmation that they are still being worked on, If I am not mistaken, but they are not available yet and thus also delayed?
I did not see such statement.
