Don't worry, there's a proper GNU/Linux phone about to be available for us Luddites . Admittedly, for the well heeled Luddites only.

Yes, both of those look very like it in their different ways. I think now that that's what it must be.

@geist That's a brilliant idea. I'll see what I can do.

No, sorry it's just a "fidget spinner"...

Much too heavy for a spinner! I think it's a 21st century fake shuriken made for the tourist trade.

Unlikely with that central roller bearing... sadly, it's probably just a "heavy" fidget spinner:

If it is one of those, clearly the centre button has been lost. It can't be spun as it is now.
