The famous smartphone with Plasma Mobile will be a reality. Or at least that indicates the crowdfunding campaign that was created for this purpose and that has finally obtained the proposed money. Librem 5, the smartphone with Plasma Mobile, already has the million and a half dollars it needed for its development and sale.
The company's smartphone Purism has raised the money with two weeks to go to finish the campaign, a fact that many (myself included) thought it would not take place.
The Purism smartphone will not only have Plasma Mobile and will be compatible with Gnome environments but it will also be the first smartphone to be based on IP technology. Also, like many other terminals, Librem 5 can be used as a desktop computer, you will only have to connect the monitor and the rest of the accessories to obtain a friendly Gnu / Linux environment.
Librem 5 has obtained all the necessary financing but still has to wait 2 more weeks to have it
Communications security will be another of the strengths of this terminal. Using encryption protocols, communications between the Librem 5 mobile and another device will be encrypted, both at the beginning and at the end, making the security of calls and sending data as secure as possible. Not forgetting that it will have Plasma Mobile as an operating system, that is, a full-fledged Gnu / Linux distribution and with the support of the KDE Community.
There are still two weeks for the crowdfunding campaign to end, two weeks until Purism gets the money to develop this smartphone that seems to promise to be the third alternative in the smartphone market. That is, the end user will have to wait at least a year for Librem 5 to be in their pocket, a torturous wait for some but if it delivers what it promises, it will be worth it. Do not you think?
