After some delay my new phone finally arrived today. Normally I'm little excited when a new toy enters the house, but yesterday I discovered there is no Google free version of Fairphone OS available yet.
It's me to blame for not doing enough research, but I assumed there would be a choice to start with the default Google enabled Fairphone OS or install the Open version, like I use for quite a while now on my Fairphone 2. According to the support page it's even not decided yet if the Open version will come. I think it more likely a alternative OS like LineageOS will deliver an image before Fairphone does. As they also did for the Fairphone 2.
Well, I think my Fairphone 2 will last some more time. I'm already used to the waiting.. so I will survive a few months more.
