What is Plasma Mobile

Plasma Mobile offer a Free (as in Freedom and beer), user-friendly, privacy-enabling and customizable platform for mobile devices. Plasma Mobile is Free software and developed in an open process. Plasma Mobile is currently under development, a prototype running on a smartphone and providing basic functionality is available.


The most common offerings on mobile devices lack openness and trust. In a world of walled gardens, we want to create a platform that respects and protects the user's privacy to the fullest. We want to provide a fully open base which others can help develop and use for themselves, or in their products.

What's the status?

Plasma Mobile is available as a developer prototype running on an LG Nexus 5 smartphone. It can make and receive phone calls, provides a workspace to manage the system and a task switcher to control and navigate apps on the device.
