What sort of peripherals would you like to see for the PineNote? Internal 3g/5g modem
The PineNote introduction is exciting to me. I can't wait to find out about battery life.
I would use it mostly for reading textbooks, writing/notetaking and audio playback (music, teaching, etc.)
I'm imagining a kindle-like device with bash, awk, and gcc, and it's looking excellent.

But I don't really want an internal modem.

Here's what I'd like to see:

  • I'm happy with the bluetooth and wifi. I would use the bluetooth primarily for a keyboard and audio connections. I type a lot, and this would be ideal for the long bus rides (well, like the  ones that I used to take pre-COVID!...)
  • No modem, please, because of the *significant* power requirements. Battery life is important for me.
  • I'm with Arwen Evenstar , I like the idea of gold dots for a dock with wired network. The gold dots are not a deal breaker.

  • The 128gb flash is way more than I can foresee myself using, since it doesn't look great for video.
  • As someone already mentioned, a card reader could be useful for transferring files. This is not a deal breaker for me, though.

  • The 16-shade grayscale is great. I hope that it can be used in white-on-black mode, if that's a thing.
  • I don't know the techniques for this sort of display, but I imagine the software generating colors that are converted to grayscale just before display. Some way to display to a bigger screen is attractive, but I wouldn't pay more than $20.00 for it.
