    Huh, they actually seem to make progress faster than I had expected.

    Still though I am quite sceptical about the January 2019 release unless they cut corners during QA, but I'm sure it will be released during 2019.

    The x86 image under QEMU looks like fun to test out.

    I still think they're idiots for not going with the half-finished plasma mobile, and instead half baking their own stuff...
    The gnome stack was nowhere near ready for this usecase.

    As a full time developer, I think that If that was just a software project, like writing a new production ready mobile Wayland compositor, I'd say that they won't be able to keep the January 2019 deadline. When you think that they're also trying to developer hardware at the same time, I'd say even January 2020 is not realistic at this point.

    Doesn't look like it as the current git master (i.e. what will become Epiphany 3.30 in the fall), still doesn't have support for WebRTC.

    I hope they get that soon. I was hoping to port a html5 based game to the platform... Maybe i can install firefox then ...
    Or maybe i can use websockets.

    I'd love to see them hit their target, but I would be so surprised to see the finished product in January. I'd even be surprised if they shipped by January 2020. My guess is the first phones will be sent out in the second half of 2020.
