Yesterday we mentioned that Mobian will be the new OS in PinePhone CE. Now the Mobian Community Edition (CE) PinePhones are now available for pre-order in the Pine Store.
Here you can order the Mobian Community Edition (CE) PinePhone:
This community edition will ship in a custom presentation box designed by Mobian’s team, and the PinePhone itself will feature a Debian swirl logo on the back-cover (see renders for reference).
This PinePhone CE will be available in two hardware configurations:
Both configurations of the Mobian CE PinePhones feature rev. 1.2b of the PCBA. The $199 hardware variant, called convergence package, also includes a USB-C dock equipped with 10/100 Ethernet, 2x USB type A ports, HDMI digital video output and power-in via USB-C.
What can we expect from PinePhone Mobian Community Edition?
PinePhone Mobian Community Edition will include an installer that will allow you to choose a user password and enable full disk encryption.
PinePhone with Mobian will have all the basic functionality of the phone: including voice calls, SMS, mobile broadband, Wi-Fi, front and rear cameras.
Mobian’s developers caution that the software is still largely in progress and evolving almost daily. It is important that you update your phone immediately after receiving it.
