    Gemini Cosmo - On Indiegogo

    The "full" linux install almost does. It just leaves a minimal android filesystem for the blobs which the linux partition references. The good news is full hardware support because of the android drivers, the bad news is still android drivers. Based on the minimal development for the gemini I...

    Gemini Cosmo - On Indiegogo

    It uses libhybris, basically a wrapper for the existing android drivers/blobs in the android partition. Even a "full" linux install will retain those android drivers/blobs. https://wiki.postmarketos.org/wiki/Hybris

    Gemini Cosmo - On Indiegogo

    The Cosmo is pretty fantastic. The second screen utilizes the lockscreen notification api so most apps have some ability to be controlled or show info on the second screen.

    I'm not sure what exact help China is expecting or needs from the US?
