Well, some of your assumptions are wrong.
Yes, some apps are unmodified, and it’s great that they still work fine.
Some have been adapted (by Purism) with libhandy (by Purism) to work on that screen size.
It’s the best approach to adapt existing software, and from the beginning that’s what they said they’d do.
Also, I’m pretty sure some of the more interesting apps have yet to be revealed.
Why would they start with the cream of the crop?
Another point: We have seen Week #1. Week #2 continues (Twitter, Mastodon Social, or here in the timeline)
And I consider the possibility that they intend to continue this for some more weeks, maybe until the end of July, when the sale will end. That could be 28, 35 or even 42 (which would be prefect ) apps / videos, which is pretty awesome.
I don’t think Purism will receive the final phones before August, I rather assume September.
What they might have by now is a production sample that they test before giving the final go.
And if that is the case, I guess we’ll see it in the coming days
