Welcome to all the new (soon-to-be) #PinebookPro and #Pinephone owners! We've got a blog post for you with the basics of what you need to know, and where to find more information or help, should you need it.
Ahead of people receiving their #PinebookPro's the Wiki release page has been refreshed with most notable releases:
We haven't been good at posting about updates here. We will try to be better at it, just so many things going on with all the nifty @PINE64 stuff!
But nevertheless. Here's a new #testing update for you all:
Our biggest ever production run of @PinebookPro is about to start shipping! Let's see how much everyone enjoys the @ManjaroARM build preinstalled on them. :)
The #PinePhone UBports Community Edition will be available for some time yet, but if you want your unit to ship this month, then place your order before the coming weekend. Just putting it out there for those on the fence so no one complains later :)
Here a bit of a fun comparison for all of you:
A #PinebookPro compared to a state of the art notebook from 2002.
Of course, the Pinebook Pro is so much faster too. 😉

A bit of context for the ongoing payment option poll:
We're very aware that from the public perspective, having direct credit/debit card payment would be the most convenient for many people.
However, it is extremely difficult to handle that in a fashion which works for the entire world. Card processing is not a one-size-fits-all scenario unfortunately. As it currently stands, direct card payment would be undue stress and workload on our sales team.
Suggestions on this subject are welcome.
Per popular request we're exploring alternative payment options. Let's assume we keep Paypal and ONLY add #bitcoin as an option, will you use Bitcoin for future purchases?
