Just like advanced at the beginning of September, the PinePhone is now available to reserve. For those who read about this terminal for the first time, say that it is an alternative to other terminals that use operating systems such as Android and iOS, using the Pine64 proposal, an operating system based on KDE's Plasma Mobile called postmarketOS. Two months ago we were promised that the first units could be shipped by the end of the year, deadlines that seem to be met.
The PinePhone will be available in different editions with different specifications. The one that can already be reserved is the edition BraveHeart. The asking price for this edition for developers and "Early Adopters" is € 149, but it must be taken into account that it is the first version of the phone and that it comes with points to improve. For example, if we want to be able to do something with it, the first thing we will have to do after receiving it is to install the operating system, right now in beta.
PinePhone BraveHeart will begin to arrive at the end of the year or early 2020
Pine64 has not given an exact date on when the first users will be able to enjoy their phone. In the booking website they say that the Estimated shipping will be in December 2019 or early January 2020, so in the worst case they will arrive within two months.
