On the matter of the proposed Pine64 mobile device (a potentially unpopular opinion)
Forget three years, this would be the SBC market's analogue to the AOL/Time Warner merger - a catastrophic failure on a legendary scale. It will dilute the brand, stagnate platform growth, and deliver a spectacular slap in the face to the hard-working folks who donate our time and energy to this company only to be presented with the most vapid exercise in stupidity conceivable. Why not make a PineZune while you're at it?

Firefly (subsidiary of T-Chip) is already exploring greater AI integration, and their RK3399 stands neck-and-neck with RockPro64 – Firefly's board is already the better product as it is, so if there were ever a time to pour every resource into Pine64's supposed flagship board, that time is now. If not months ago, but it is what it is.

If you guys are serious about this PinePhone, I wish you the best of luck. But dkryder is absolutely correct: Pine64 can either expand upon what they've accomplished, or squander it all on some braindead vanity epedition like a PinePhone.

P. s. 2G phone lmao that's too funny.
