What sort of peripherals would you like to see for the PineNote? Internal 3g/5g modem
#23
Thinking about the docking station, perhaps something slightly simpler can be made:
  • Use USB-C for external power. Meaning the docking station does not come with a power brick. Either use your own USB-C power brick or buy one that suits your needs.
  • Support a USB Type A port, (or 2), powered from USB-C port, not tablet
This would allow the use of wired network through an USB Type A to Ethernet dongle. Or a (Micro)SD card reader. Even different wireless networking, as long as a USB version is available. (Of course, all would need software support. But that is a bit of the point using Open Source software. You get to choose what you use.)

That way, the cost would be reduced and leave the choice of what might be added to the user.


Ideally, the recessed gold dots / pogo pins would be for USB 3 speeds. Instead of 4 contacts, it would be 10:
  • 1 for positive power
  • Ground
  • 2 for USB 2 half-duplex channel
  • Ground
  • 2 for USB 3 transmit
  • Ground
  • 2 for USB 3 receive
Then if you have to transfer files to / from the tablet it would not be limited to the USB 2's 480Mbps half duplex channel.
