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! 😎
@PINE64 I didn't read the whole thing, need to do stuff.
Would like a 2D thing be fine? I wouldn't really want to design an entire model for something like this when it might not be picked.
@gudenau At least at first, it's probably fine. Preference would obviously go to designs that are already fleshed out more, though.
@PINE64 Wouldn't be a napkin sketch of course.
N900 is a great starting point.
@PINE64 this makes me want a PinePhone even more
@PINE64 A physical keyboard would be a great addition for the PinePhone,especially for people like me who love working with the Terminal.I think I'll buy the keyboard as soon as it becomes available if everything works fine with the PinePhone I just ordered.
Could you possible make said keyboard usable as an extra battery when attached to the pine phone? An extra removable and replaceable battery source would be a good addition.
@PINE64 If you haven't yet, talk to Dirk and the gang who made the TOHKBD for the Jolla-Phone. Lots of valuable knowledge was gathered there.
