I’m worried that he might fall in love with it and never deliver it!
Everyone who I talk to about the Librem 5 tells me how much they want the phone.


#50

Who said he would know what kind of the phone he is carrying ? :slight_smile:
Get some ugly / funny skin decals to slap on the phone (preferably Android ) or a case of the same sort. Say it’s a brand new phone, so they don’t dare to play with it.
The box with paperwork, you can ship without worrying about custom fees :slight_smile:

#52

Glad to know I won’t be the only one!


#53

I believe this desire will fade as soon as they have the chance to put their hand on it… Unless they are massive nerds like many of us, of course…

  • privacy? No Google? :white_check_mark:
  • updates for more than two years? :white_check_mark:
  • no stupid ads in the weather app? :white_check_mark:

You don’t need to be a nerd to appreciate that. Not everybody does, but the number is growing.


#55

Actually, I’m what’s traditionally considered the opposite of a nerd and predict many more like me will be very interested in the Librem 5 as it receives more attention because; The answer to the question “Who watches the watchers?” is freaking everyone!


#56

The average people doesn’t care about Google, in opposite they want maps, gmail, millions of apps, and, after all, what they have to hide? That’s the main reason because Librem 5 is an extremely restricted niche. Let’s be honest, this phone is not for the masses!


#57

I wrote “many of us” for this same reason


#58

You’re not really making a counter argument. I said

If we have 95% indifferent, average people (“the masses”) and 1% geeks, that leaves us with 4% ordinary, concerned people who can be interested. Tell those about this phone. Not those that think a stereo cam and 4k screens are a “must have”.


#59

Germany agaain. I have the feeling that there is quite a nice community for Librem 5 phones here. :slight_smile:


#60

Yeah, but you also wrote…

I am average people. I am the masses. I’m guessing there are others on this very forum who are too as I sit here goofing off at work watching a pigeon walk around in circles on cctv over the top of my lappy.

Oh great, now 'everyday people" by sly and the family stone is going through my head
