KDE Joins Purism in an Attempt to Build World’s First Privacy-Focused Smartphone

As you may be aware, KDE develops the Plasma Mobile environment for tablets and smartphones, besides the Plasma desktop environment that you’re probably using right now on your personal computer. Purism recently launched a crowdfunding campaign for a new Linux smartphone that they call Librem 5, and it looks like they’ll be working with the KDE team to build the first fully free and open source smartphone using Plasma Mobile.
