ZeroPhone: The Open Source smartphone with Linux

ZeroPhone: The Raspberry Pi he is one -board υπολογιστής  που κοστίζει (από) 35 δολάρια, σε μέγεθος πιστωτικής κάρτας. Συνδέστε ένα πληκτρολόγιο, τηλεόραση ή DVI / HDMI οθόνη και μια κάρτα SD με ένα υποστηριζόμενο Linux εγκατεστημένο ή και ένα FreeBSD πλέον και έχετε ένα μικρό υπολογιστή, καθ' όλα έτοιμο για να πάτε στην δουλειά σας ή για κάμπινγκ αφού μπορεί να τροφοδοτηθεί ακόμα και από φωτιά. Καθόλου τυχαίο δεν είναι το γεγονός πως ανακηρύχθηκε και σε ένα από τα πέντε κορυφαία Linux for 2012.

Out of it Raspberry Pi Zero θεωρείται ως μία από τις πιο προσιτές και χρήσιμες καινοτομίες στην βιομηχανία ηλεκτρονικών υπολογιστών. Έχει βοηθήσει τα παιδιά να μάθουν προγραμματισμό. Είναι αυτό που έδωσε στους κατασκευαστές την δυνατότητα να αναπτύξουν, με μικρό κόστος, ισχυρά DIY πρότζεκτς (DIY = do-it-yourself = κάντο μόνος σου).. Μπορείτε να κάνετε πραγματικά απίστευτες δημιουργίες με ένα Raspberry Pi και όχι άδικα κατέστη πραγματική επιτυχία μεταξύ των οπαδών της around the world.ZeroPhone

One of these creations is also the "smart" ZeroPhone phone that is listed in the Hackaday.
It is Open Source - and therefore very cheap - and is powered by the Raspberry Pi Zero. It runs Linux and you can make one yourself, with its components costing just $ 50. The accessories can also be found at eBay and to Amazon.

Why ZeroPhone?

Because it has everything you need from a smartphone, and it runs Linux.
You can make calls, send, send SMS, and run apps, while being free of apps that compromise your security.
Note that you can also write applications for this phone.
At its strong points that it is also pentesting - that is, it does a security check for any weak points of the system.

Soon, the crowdfunding (in Greek, funding from the crowd) of the phone is expected. [Crowdfunding is a new form of financing, operating since 2009 in the US and in of Europe, which has partly changed the terms of the financial game across the planet since with it the creators manage to make their idea a reality thanks to the small investments of thousands of Internet users. The project creator receives the donation money after the date they set, usually 30 days.]


The ZeroPhone, as we said, is built using a Raspberry Pi Zero. Special care has been taken so that you can choose its components and assemble it yourself. For this very reason, to make it easy to assemble it yourself by simply buying its parts, there are no proprietary terminals / plugs (connectors), nor is it difficult to find the parts and solder them.

You can also connect a numeric keypad, 128 × 64 OLED display, 2G modem, WiFi, GPIO extension header, etc. on the phone.

Python programming language is used to develop applications.
The which is used is the Raspbian Linux distribution, based on Debian Jessie.

The ZeroPhone does not lack any features, since as a smartphone it has WiFi, it can of course be used for calls and SMS and in general it has all the basic applications and functions such as alarm clock, calendar, phone book, file search engine, web browser (browser) and music player (mechanism music). Since it is essentially a Linux computer, you can run all the applications that are compatible with ARM core devices. And yes, you can also use SSH (Secure Shell, the secure network protocol that not only encrypts the data exchanged during the session, but also offers a secure identification system as well as other features such as secure files -SSH File Transfer Protocol, SFTP etc).

The ZeroPhone manufacturer writes that you can also use it for pentesting (security checks) and experimenting.


DIY · do it yourself

The components used to build ZeroPhone are:

- Raspberry Pi Zero

- SIM800 modules

- ESP8266-12E for WiFi

- 2-layer PCBs

- ATMega328P

- LCD screen

- Battery

- Battery charger TP4056
