True. The message claimed to be about Debian handhelds, but it actually wasn't.
reasons: 1. exclude Android devices. 2. restrict discussion to my preferred Linux. I've been literal minded for over 70 years and bull headed for most of it ;/ [snip]Oh, and I've remembered another alternative, the Purism Librem 5. This is NOT available in the U.S. (though it should be in the coming months), but it's a 5" touchsceen smartphone with USB hosting capability, and a hardware kill-switch for disabling baseband (cellular) radio.  https://puri.sm/shop/librem-5/That's going in the right direction. We'll see if I haven't found another solution by the time its available in the U.S.
