Purism Ships Librem 5 Dev Kits as the Linux Phones Will Arrive in April 2019
Just in time for the Christmas holidays, Purism announced today that they have finally managed to prepare the Librem 5 Linux phone dev kit hardware for shipping to their backers.
Based on the newer and more powerful i.MX 8M 64-bit ARM boards, upgrading older devs kits based on the generic i.MX6 boards, the Librem 5 dev kits will soon arrive in the hands of early adopters as Purism needs all the help it can get from the community to continue and accelerate the development of its Linux-powered, privacy-focused phones, the Librem 5.
“There is still a lot of work required to make the dev kit truly functional for Librem 5 development, so we need your assistance,” said Purism. “The frenetic pace of development continues and it’s astonishing how much we’ve accomplished in the two months since we’ve put the hardware together. But the path is still long and arduous.”
