The GNOME Foundation has today given its backing to Purism's ambition of building a free, open-source smartphone with user privacy and encryption as a central feature.
Purism and KDE have today announced plans to work together to bring Plasma Mobile to the Librem 5 handset, the Linux phone currently being crowdfunded.
Crowdfunding for the Purism 5 Linux phone has soared past $200,000 — and is on course to succeed.
The open-source community has pledged more than $100,000 to the Purism Librem 5 crowdfunding campaign, which kicked off on August 24.
Would you buy a truly open-source phone running nothing but free software? If you would, Purism want to know the sort of hardware specs you'd expect to get from it.
