I have only recently been made aware of Fairphone. Am i right in thinking the only available OS is Android…?
Unfortunately i have never had the impression that Google (Android) is a company that i can support. There are a number of Moral issues which I can see. My main concerns the support of one of the largest Capitalist Companies in the world profiting in an unconscientious manner, a second issue is Data Protection, this is however definitely a lesser evil but still contributes to my opinion. Fairphone is undoubtedly a market leader in the world of technology for those of us who are inclined to think about the greater picture when making a purchase, but as soon as Fairphone partners up with google/android the decision of the purchaser to make a conscientious decision in almost undone, at least in my relatively naive and relatively uneducated opinion. My Problem is, if i support Fairphone , i support much more through default.
Do the global practices of Google match the ideology of Fairphone?
How do Fairphone and Fairphone users justify the gap between the values of google and the values they personally hold?
Is there the possibility to develop a new OS which is independent from such Global Capitalists?
I hope i receive some interesting arguments that can lead to me developing my opinion in the right direction!
