I have been wanting an e-ink phone for a while, and a simpler one; just text and phone. This might be it, the LightPhone. More attractive to me than the Librem 5, by far.

I suspect as little as I use my current iClone 6, it would be perfect for me. I don’t know what the cost of a new iPhone is, but probably three times the price as this one. And requiring a lot more precious Earth matter.
I love the promo vids. Which show people enjoying other activities and conversation instead of everything being centered around staring into the phone. Perfect!
Another option, if you wonna go “dumb”, is the Punkt MP02.
Beautiful hardware design, quite buggy software. Special feature: can create a wifi hotspot for your tablet/laptop.

Ah, right, I remember you mentioned that, I think. That’s an old article. Are those things still available?
Not sure, but anyway, I would test it before ordering an ink-screen phone. It’s perfect for beach reading (provided the resolution is high enough), but can be unusable in the dark. And typing long texts can be problematic – ink screens are generally slower and less sensitive/precise.
