Fairphone is designed to be long lasting and user repairable. The materials acquisition is meant to be fair and ethical. Their second phone was released in 2015, so they are due for an update, but they raised a million Euro of crowd-investment in a few days and are updating their hardware and expanding their reach. They are in central Europe, but I wonder if the goals of the project overlap with the Republic community and if we could be a means for the Fairphone to come to the US? Now that Republic has GSM, it shouldn’t be technically hard as far as I know.
What do you think?
