I like the idea of a linux cell phone on that site, however the prices of the phone you are getting are way overpriced...   my cell phone i have now is a nokia, and my specs are triple the specs of that phone they are selling, and i bought mine on ebay for 50 bucks...  so 150 and 200 is way out of line, someone needs to tell them if they want to sell those phones they have to fix that price, that phone is only worth about 25 bucks with those specs....

To be fair Nokia is a multinational company and Pine64 is a small niche project. It's kinda like comparing Wal-Mart to a family owned general store.

One has an army of buyers and sellers agreeing on pricing and the other has a guy named Steve. :D

(Of course I don't know if Pine 64 has a Steve, just making the comparison of scale as it relates to resources, pricing and accessibility to a world market.)
