Sonim XP5700, though it is only partially dumb. It runs a minimal custom Android. There is also the Punkt phone, if Android is a concern.

@salixlucida Lawson's?! Man, I haven't hear of 's since the 80's I remember Lawson's growing up in Ohio! How did they end up in Nihon...just checked. Looks like they have been there since the late 70's and haven't been State-side since 1985...except Hawaii in 2012...

@starbreaker bots? I'm not really sure what kind of automation I would need for mastodon. Something to think about tho.

Thanks, @ebarrett, I'll have to check it out!
