    Perhaps the answer is to be found in the last paragraph of the following:
    ***************************

    From Pine64‘s "October Update: PineTime, Delays and Shipping News" ( https://www.pine64.com )

    "[EDIT 18/10/2019] Since writing this blog entry I provided an update on the situation (Pinebook Pro, PinePhone and PineTime [the 'PineTime' is Pine's $20.00 'SmartWatch'] dev kits shipping) on the forum. Click here."

    ["Clicking here" gets you to...]



    ...and here is ONE of Pine64's answer to a commenter, regarding 'open-ness', and the Librem device--

    "Hey,
    About being open: I see no other way for PINE64. In a sense this is more of a typical open-source project than a 'company', and most of it is community ran. To this end, there is no traditional divide between the device vendor and the community. You want to write for the blog or even edit the front page? - ping me. Want to edit the wiki - you can do so already ... any part or it too, just use the forum creds. Want to see something in the next products we announce? - you can talk to me and TL [the founder of Pine] any day of the week (pretty much) in the chats. Doesn't take much to convince us to do X or Y if its sound. The PinePhone is a prime example of this - it was built from the ground up with devs and community input. "

    "As for the Librem5: Looks like they have a very interesting device on their hands. I wholeheartedly hope they'll succeed in achieving their goals with - the more Linux phones on the market the better for everyone. There is place for both devices ... and many more to come I hope."

      As one of SHR developers back then, I can say that it was pretty light indeed, but a bit of PITA to work with, as it was a constantly moving target.
      You can go Tizen, as it has a lot more apps, and drivers for mobile..
      Due to that, I think that Tizen OS, is a better alternative than a gnome phone.. ( due to the effort done with Enlightenment on its Intel Linux core by Samsung.. ).

        Wow... except for the direct quotes from the Pine guys, that was a harsh post. Anyway, thanks for the explanation, it helped. I'm in the same boat with Luke - I hope that both the devices do succeed. With ShiftPhone and FairPhone bringing more hardware modularity and Librem5 and PinePhone bringing more software modularity, there's something to look forward to in the future.

          Or the user will buy a Pixel and flash GrapheneOS or so on it. Or look at the Fairphone that has an interesting concept
          you still benefit from what they have done with their phone like separating baseband from the cpu, kill switches and open drivers. add to that the lower price, software availability and shipping the device earlier.
          when it comes to linux, they could give people who are interested in this phone a timeline, when they are going to work on it and when it's going to be ready.

            However, yesterday he was acting different... I told him to turn off the phone and he told me "nooo, don't worry, it's, it's... it's a simple thing. these phone do not do anything, it's simple, they, it, it, it's nothing. I have checked. it... it's nothing"...

            It really drove me insane!

              Welcome to true open-ness, honesty, and lack of any rancor regarding the competition, folks.

              Based on some of the self-serving comments here, it'll probably be too much for some of you to handle. I suggest you types don't read anything from Pine, or anything positive about Pine; simply keep wallowing in your well-cultivated and hard-won stupidity and pre-conceived notions.

                Don't worry. danmcgrew tends to severely demean its surroundings to no end, only because he is a poet.

                  It's funny to me. How do people think phones can respond to your voice? We humans have to be able to hear things before we can respond too...
