it is a piece of plastic and metal it cannot be worthy of anything.

Is it wise to switch a phone created for Linux to Android? that is another question all together.

actually, we fell into the old trap: android is linux. duh.

so, my question should've been: is there a full gnu/linux phone? these are operating systems.
the list of supported devices is usually very short, and it's debatable whether these devices then are full gnu/linux phones.
hence my question.

1. well I have to agree that catch 22 Linux / android got me too.
2. I am not going out and buying an "Linux" Phone to see. Though buying a fully blown Linux desktop OS on a phone then wanting to install Android is just, well to me, silly. Though I am still waiting for one brain to come up with a means to install full blown Linux/GNU on a tablet, any Tablet.
