  • A US-based firm has launched a Linux-powered smartphone.
  • The so-called Liberty Phone retails for a ridiculous $2,199.
  • Numerous customers have complained that they haven’t received the firm’s previous phone.

Android and iOS dominate the smartphone space, but what if you want a phone with an alternative operating system? Fortunately, there are a few devices out there, but we implore you to absolutely stay away from the Liberty Phone by US-based company Purism.

The company has recently announced the Liberty Phone (h/t: Liliputing), coming in at an eye-watering $2,199 price tag. But you only need to take a look at the hardware specs to know that you’re getting ripped off in a big way (if you get the phone, that is).
