Hi All - 

Because I'm not a full-on Linux-wallah (to say the least) I just would like to know, is the Free Runner a phone/mobile internet device ? (I know that may be a REALLY dumb question, but still...) 

- and ALSO if it IS a phone, does its FLOSSy interior mean it won't necessarily be sending moment-to-moment updates back to the NSA in the Old Country and Menwith Hill closer to (adopted) home...?

Answers will be much appreciated...!

Well I'd be interested in that, I'd already signed the Hantslug

bulkbuy listbut

naturally it would be easier to get the phone from someone in

Glasgow/Edinburgh. Are there enough people in the area for a 12-pack?
