Few phones can claim to be running a "full" version of Linux. Even fewer could boast of having reached the consumer market at all. That extremely short list includes the OpenMoko and the Nokia N900 and N9.

The journey isn't over yet, however, as the process to get those privacy-respecting phones into users' hands is going to be a story in itself, spread out across batches all the way to the second quarter of 2020.
