The GeeksPhone One (ARMv6) (and I presume the GeeksPhone Zero) is
Rhombus-Tech is creating a Raspberry Pi-like product that will be
100% freedom respecting. Even the hardware designs are free.

Since it was brought up in a similar discussion on IRC, I'll go ahead
and rule out the Pandora as it requires non-free firmwares.
