Small update:
According to the website there are now over 4,000 confirmed orders.

I am confident that by the end of the appointment time at 14.06. the required number of 5,000 will be significantly exceeded.

And I'm starting in October with a new smartphone. :D

Nice. Let us know how it goes!

Personally I will wait for a GNU/Linux phone with aq qwerty keyboard. Perhaps Jolla will provide that with the "second half"..

Hello everybody,
now there is a new version of the Fairohone.
The Fairphone 2 is on pre-order for € 530.

Is now of course already significantly more expensive, but also provides - apart from the "fair" approach - a significantly better technique
and a more realistic possibility of long use.

Search just looking at Google or their relatives.

Best regards
Magnus
