PinePhone / Pine Tab dock or PineBook
I am a big fan, of Pine, and there efforts...   As one of the Braveheart's customers, and a recent (1 year and counting) convert to Linux (Arch/KDE) I have tried various device combinations in the effort to  get to a  place  where the  Phone is the enabler to the Laptop equivalent experience.   so playing with Samsung's Dex efforts,  and Asus's ZenPhone / laptop like dock etc.    though none of those really had the software to make the  hardware work in the right alignment.

The Pine Phone on the other hand has the exact right hardware alignment to be a  plugin to a PineTab like case, which would give a portable slate with keyboard experience,  or maybe even a Pinebook Shell that the phone plugs into to provide a Laptop experience.

These would be considered accessories,  so they are dumb devices without say the phone or other Pine SoC board (with adapter board for common insertion).

The key is that it needs to insert into the shell of the device, unlike the Nexdock2 etc,  if not inserted into, maybe a recess that the phone has a magnetic case that locks into position etc this method would provide better long term support.

The Dock essentially would provide  the Screen, Typing and Battery extension aspects.
