PinePhone Braveheart Linux smartphone begins shipping January 17th


The PinePhone is an inexpensive smartphone designed to run Linux-based operating systems. Developed by the folks at Pine64, the $150 smartphone was first announced about a year ago — and this week the first units will ship.

Pine64 says it will begin shipping the PinePhone Braveheart Edition on January 17th — although it could take a few weeks for customers to receive their phones. This Braveheart edition phone is aimed at early adopters willing to tinker and test the hardware and try out various software environments.
