    Did anyone else laugh when the one guy hung-up/ignored his mom's call?

    That is the most non-descript and accurate statement I've ever read. I too want things for reasons.

    I really hope this is the true sucessor to the Nokia N900 / N9. But I miss the qwerty keyboard :|

    You want reasons? here you go
    1. full ripe Linux userspace unlike android
    2. respect to gnu, unlike commercial android
    3. not dumbed down by default unlike android (adblock possible over cellular (where it precisely needed due to ad suckage of expensive traffic), can remove Google forced chrome, can use libreoffice (with Google still ignoring ODF and sleeping with docx))

    typing this from galaxy tab 3 2014, so that you know. Android is commercial baby toy, it's not gnu or Linux spirit, but it's a nice toy, unlike microsoft crap.

    Sounds interesting, I like the design of the phone and I like the fact that it can run Android apps. I wonder about the software keyboard though. Does it have functionality similar to Swype found on Samsung devices, and in multiple languages? If not then it's a no go for me.
