What sort of peripherals would you like to see for the PineNote? Internal 3g/5g modem
The primary peripheral I want is me.  And something that stretches time and gives me the spare time to develop for it.

For me, wifi / bluetooth is plenty.  With a suitable external application, I "could" use the pinetab to guide a presentation rather than using a glowy tablet.  Yeah, color, but if it's *my* presentation then I already know what's going on.

And an e-ink tablet would just be cooler.

I can't think of many hardware peripherals I want.  epaper ain't fast, and I don't want one for playing videos, etc.  I can see a LTE/GSM modem being useful for people way off-grid (through hikers, etc.) who need to keep in touch every once in a while.  But the power drain kills the epaper advantage unless it's ultra-low duty cycle.  Plain LTE's session handshakes are too long and eat too much power.  Honestly the M and NB1 variants are lower but still painful.  Those protocols appear the only commercial options in the US.  We have practically no LoRaWAN or Sigfox (?) build-out.
