Lets create the PineCom
#60
Sounds like an interesting project !.

I like the concept of a low-cost messenger device without the need for subscriptions, etc from mobile operators (or at least very low cost).
I suspect the device doesn't need cameras but requires GPS and ability to share location, etc.

WiFi & Lora at a minimum. I could imagine this (depending on cost of the PineCom) being very popular with those that just want to message between interested groups and over relatively short distances (metro areas, etc). This handled by Lora, with WiFi a good option when available.

So - relatively good sized screen but physical or virtual keyboard ?. If former, then only small screen required, if latter then relatively large primarily for the keyboard.

Anyway - really interesting project and can think of a number of use cases already........

Cheers,
Steve
