More on the Freedom Phone

Following up on the earlier post on the topic, here Tim Pool interviews Eric Finman the man behind the Freedom Phone. The two of them and the engineers discuss it, mesh networking, the Fediverse, and concerns being voiced about the Phone. Eric Fineman is not an experienced public speaker but he does a creditable job of allaying many of the fears about this device....


"It's just a group of people." Is gonna be in some PR handbook someday. 

...right up until shortly after 09:32  when he cuts his wrists lengthwise, douses himself in gasoline, does a Naruto Run through a campfire, grabs a Tiki torch, and  shouts "Tekalili!" before proceeding with what is otherwise an interesting discussion.

1 One mildly annoying thing is he doesn't list the actual components--as Tim brings up with the "8MP front camera".  Some people would like to know which sensor it is.  Ditto the "1.8GHz 8 cores".  Well, some of us would like to know how many of those cores are A5x series vs A7x series, and what  GPU's in there.
It's not the Umidigi A9 pro, because the cameras are different (24MP vs 8MP front camera, for example, and the A9 Pro says the Helio P60 in it is 2GHz, it's got less RAM, and so on.  The A9 has specs that don't match the Freedom Phone, either.)
