I wrote a blog post about connecting hardware to the #pinephone pogo pins :)
An Invitation to Play Along:
We're currently developing a N900-style keyboard attachment for the #Pinephone. Do you think you can do better? Prove it. If you're right, your design may make it to production! 😎
My @firstname.lastname@example.org #PinePhone is here! (USB for scale) Loving tinkering with it so far and the form factor/build quality is actually quite nice. Can't wait to really start using it as a @email@example.com development platform, this device's future is looking great.
We couldn't quite fit it in the Community Update last week, so here it is now:
All About the #PineTab!
- Production/Shipping updates
- 6000mAh battery
- Shipping mid-August
#PinebookPro is back in stock in our store, in both ISO and ANSI variants! Estimated shipping late August.
Sorry about the Pine Store downtime (which never got mentioned by me on Mastodon -- oops!), we're back online now.
We had some data corruption issues that had to be fixed for the sales team's sake, but to be clear: NO ORDERS WERE LOST. However, a small handful of customers may be directly contacted by the sales team to clarify some missing information.
It's that time of the month again -- the July 2020 Update Blog is live!
I have said we have too much news to list for several previous entries, but that's especially true today. This is the biggest update we've had yet.
Thanks to the work of Samuel Holland, crust advanced power management is now capable of running the #PinePhone for 100hrs in idle without the modem (approximately 110mW). With modem on, we should get 40% battery run-time increase (to approx 24 hrs).
Coming to your distro of choice soon!
Buy now and have it shipped soon. NB. DHL shipments only.
It's finally here!
Download and try the Alpha1 now:
We now have our own Matrix homeserver, and it is running on #RockPro64 hardware just like the rest of our online infrastructure! All our discussion/support channels have been moved to it as their main address.
Did I also mention it's open for user registration? 😊
