We're happy to share a few pictures of a #Pinecil prototype!
The Pinecil is our upcoming ~$25 RISC-V based soldering iron, powered via USB-C or the barrel plug.

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.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
