Want to try out Plasma Mobile? We have an ISO you can use. Try it using VirtualBox, QEMU or a real device and send us feedback.
Note that this image is prepared for x86-64-based devices, so it probably will NOT work on your phone (unless you have a very special phone). Remember: This is preview software, so it is not ready for production yet and we can guarantee things WILL break.
