Thank you for the comprehensive and interesting description.

I thought that only Apple would produce a phone that would require you to 
buy a new car (and only Apple users would actually do it).

I'm foolishly hoping that the Gemini device has a fairly normal Linux API 
so that just about anything can be downloaded and installed (or compiled 
and installed), preferably .deb-based. It has 4-gb of RAM and 64-gb of 
storage and a fast chip, so it should be able to run whatever is thrown at 
it, as long as there are drivers and the X is robust. (The discussion 
following the register story included a lengthy conversation about the 
Nokia devices, though I don't know if the N9 was mentioned.)

But now I'll look more closely at the Sailfish OS and the devices that run 
it. Fortunately, my Honda is 2004 and therefore won't work with anything!

Though I still hope to be the first person to get TDE running reliably with 
all its features on a telephone!
