Turing Robotic Industries this week announced that it has uninstalled Google's Android mobile platform in favor of Jolla's Sailfish OS in its yet-to-appear secure smartphone. The Turing Phone, molded from a single unit of the Liquidmorphium liquid-metal alloy, is designed to be more durable to absorb shocks and prevent screen breakage. Preorder pricing ranges from $610 for the 16-GB version to $870 for the 128-GB model. TRI started taking preorders for the smartphone last year.

Still looking for a decent handheld OS. iOS and Android aren't much good for more than games. I hope Sailfish does away with the "user is evil" mentality. If it does I'll buy one of these in a heart-beat!
