Having the trait of being rather picky about my phone, considering how it’s my little digital companion throughout my life. I’m VERY picky on it’s traits, what it does, and what it doesn’t do without me telling it.
That said, I’m looking at a DIY smartphone route based on Arduino and seeing if I can get it running Cyanogenmod.
That said, this obviously is VERY far from Republic Wireless’s list of approved phones.
However, Republic Wireless says that the phones on it’s BYOP list are on there specifically because they have requirements that Republic Wireless needs.
So, if I’m considering building my own phone from the ground up, chances are I can make it have whatever it is that Republic Wireless needs. So… what is that… whatever it is… that limits Republic Wireless’s BYOP list to such a short supply?
