I've been ignoring Purism because I heard their laptops aren't actually secure or free at all. Not sure how much I'd trust a phone from them, or even if I'd be able to afford it in this lifetime.

I want this phone to succeed so badly, but just like the dozen or so attempts at a FOSS before them, this is doomed for failure.

Is the hardware and firmware open source too?
