I know nothing about this nothing phone.

Nothing is a phone with no apps other than an essential core. If you want anything added to the phone, after purchase, that's on you, not the manufacturer who might be selling someone else's OS.

The reason the first one wasn't released in the US, other than beta testing, is because US carriers require the OS to integrate features specific to each carrier--certainly nothing to do with tracking and harvesting information.

That’s true IF the phone is purchased through the carrier. There isn’t anything that prevents Nothing phones from being used on us networks.

Good to know.

So I can buy one and then go to my carrier to activate it?

So long as it has the appropriate radios it can be used on what ever US network you want. It’s why unlocked iPhones made in the past 4 can be used on any US carrier.

This article could’ve been 20% the length if it didn’t repeat itself on every point five times and offer the anonymous author’s useless opinions lmao.

For anyone who doesn’t want to read the same shit over and over: Carl Pei, whose job title is never stated but I’m assuming founder/CEO, says that the Nothing Phone (2) will ship in the US because the Nothing Buds moved 1/3 of their entire volume in the states and they don’t want to miss out on that market.

Didn't they say. they wanna focus on Nothing Phone 1 first?

It’s a good budget phone, but doubt it’ll pick up much traction with Apple dominating the smartphone market in the US. Android will always be the minority in America for the near future.

Meh I want something other than Android or iOS, which I know won't be happening anytime soon.
