New to PinePhone - one basic question
#1
(My apologies in advance if I've posted this in the wrong forum. I think this is the right one, but...)


I just found out about the PinePhone and I'd love to try one and see what it's like.

My main question is "Can the PinePhone run android apps?" Is there some way to do that?

(I realize this probably isn't a straight yes or no answer to this and that it's probably been asked a thousand times. I searched the forum a bit but couldn't find a clear discussion on this, so I'm sorry if this is an oft-repeated question.)

If the answer is just plain 'no', that'll tell me something and I can go from there.

If the answer is 'yes' or 'sort of yes' or 'maybe' or 'it depends', then great- anything you can tell me along those lines would be welcome, or maybe point me to some discussion threads here that I can read through.

Thank you in advance.

You're  searching for Anbox. It will allow android apps to run on the pinephone, but it's all early stages so not ready yet. Same with Libertine and running desktop linux apps. Give it some time. Need stable builds before Anbox and Libertine can be applied.
