There's a company (called Potabi? Fivnex?) that claims to be
developing a FreeBSD-based phone on PinePhone hardware. They claim to
eventually be able to run Android apps on it. As it stands, I'm seeing
more marketing material than development efforts published by them.

If I were to hazard a guess, this "development" effort will fizzle
out. I'd like to see it come to fruition, but I'm pretty skeptical.
