I am moving to the UK in a month and am super excited that I am finally going to live in a place where the Fairphone can be shipped to!! So first of all, thank you very much for making such a great device, one that I’ve been wishing for for a long time!
However, are there any plans to make both the hardware (components, PCB boards, circuit design, etc.) and software (i.e. the OS and all installed software) Free as in Freedom in the near future? Perhaps completely open hardware design/components, and running Firefox OS or Replicant? This is obvious given the Fairphone is supposed to be a socially responsible product, and respecting a user’s basic freedoms is paramount to that stated goal.
I realise there is a poll to get people’s opinion on this, but are there concrete plans for making all this happen soon? Because if so, I’d be willing to do what I can as a non-programmer/engineer to help make it happen.
