What is LINMOB.net?

LINMOB.net is a blog on LINux on MOBile devices, that has been around for more than 10 years - on and off. Now, with new exciting products like the Pine64 PinePhone and Purisms Librem 5 scheduled to be shipped later this year, it has come back to report on all things GNU/Linux on mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and smaller notebooks.

This site is currently hosted on Framagit.
