It would be nice to use WhatsApp and Viber, instead of having to rely on SMS that is not very private, whenever you don't want to use a smart phone.

@abadesi WhatsApp is not available for KaiOS yet, but soon it will be. I believe Messenger already works on the platform, but won't order one of the phones available before they have at least WhatsApp support.

Good idea during the times where smart phones are becoming extremely overpriced.

This is very exciting for someone who would love nothing more than to ditch Android and iOS. Productivity to the max!

@fradser You can buy a Jio phone with KaiOS on ebay, about $30 or so for a new one

@fredrikaurdal In which Ebay store did you see it? I presume it's not the US store? I looked and didn't find it.

Great product! I'm curious, who is the target audience of this product?

@hasan_liou It's mostly for low income people in places like India, but I guess there are some people in the affluent world who will buy it to avoid all the over-communication noise
