Posted from Nexus 5 so limited to what I can post.
I haven't come across any specs for the phone yet... apart from the screen size (and the price!)
I was just wondering if it is going to be a capable converging device?
@3arn0wl in the off topic section @libremax in his progress reports for libram 5, number 4 dated Feb 7th is about convergence. Personally I don't know much about this or the tech side but cant imagine UBports would join up if this wasn't fully achievable but at what point I don't know. I will try and find out for you.
:) Thanks @lakota
@3arn0wl Answers are being sort and are on the way. : )
@3arn0wl Your answer is here
It'll be really hard to choose between the two, @lakota! :/
@3arn0wl Choices, choices. Be carefully what you wish for, you may well get it : )
If I had the money to spare, @lakota, I would get one of the developer boards they're selling.
@3arn0wl And I might get told off if I try and spend a few hundred on another phone. Still plenty of time to work on it I suppose.
