Would be nice. I just don't know how they plan on implementing cell service. Evidently, they don't either. :lol:
This was evidently started with a crowdfunding campaign. $599.00 USD though for a phone, a bit rich for my blood.

I reflashed a Samsung Galaxy 3 with CyanogenMOD and was a nice and fast OS. Broke the phone and bought a new one, the developers dropped the project, sucks!!! But was a nice barebones OS with no Google added BS and Carrier Bloatware.
