ZeroPhone

This is a mobile phone that:

  • First and foremost, will be a well-working reliable phone
  • Is as open-source as possible while also being cheap
  • Can be assembled and repaired independently
  • Is easy to get parts for
  • Doesn't have apps with privacy concerns
  • Allows to write your own apps in Python

Currently, it costs about 50$ in parts if you buy all the parts yourself, with parts available from eBay, TaoBao and other places - most of the phone can be assembled with just a soldering iron. During the upcoming crowdfunding, kits will be available, as well as a small batch of fully-assembled phones. User interface is written using Python, and is slowly being morphed into a lightweight phone-tailored UI framework.
