FOSDEM 19 Announcements Discussion

A lot more will be known once the Pinebook Pro dev units are available @cmeerw. I imagine because it may optionally be charged via USB-C that the Pinebook Pro is 5V. If that's correct, that'd mean 10,000 mAh would provide 50Wh. If the Pinebook Pro draws 2A (just to put a theoretical but not unrealistic number out there), that means up to about 11 hours battery life. There are loads of factors to consider like screen brightness setting, whether audio is being played, the clock speed (ie., is it doing accelerated video at the time) and so-on... so it'll be really neat to test some real-world use cases... which will come!!

Are there any plans to offer more than 4GB of ram on the Pinebook Pro? 6 or 8GB would be awesome and not a waste considering phones are coming with that much these days.

Awesome news! Wish I could pre-order today for the Pinebook Pro. Can't wait to see how the phone develops!

4GB is in dual channel configuration is the max the SOC supports
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

First post.
Just read about the amazing announcements (here) and after a quick look around registered to the Forum.
Absolutely agree with lrz35 !
I can't wait for the Pinebook Pro but I am even more interested in the PinePhone both for hacking/tweaking with Linux available 24/7 and for security/privacy...

Personally I'm much more excited about the tablet. If Bluetooth works well it'll likely become my main MP3 player for my 300+ ripped CD music collection. Both Android and IOS are geared more towards streaming from the cloud than sorting and playing music from 20GB stored locally. Clementine and Quod Libet both work great on my Raspberry Pi with 10.1" Waveshare touchscreen, so this will be a nice upgrade for me.

Looking forward to this! I love my Pinebook 14" for tinkering, but it would be nice to have a beefier unit. So long as it pans out at the $199 price tag, you can count me in.

First I like to thank you guys at Pine64.org for offering new products later this year that designed and intended for FOSS users with usable performance at low cost. I fully intend to order both the Pinebook Pro and the Pine64 Tablet w/ keyboard once available and after reading the reviews.

I will be getting them precisely because they are open platforms with Linux support, and willing to work with distro developer/maintainers, in particular with the Manjaro-ARM team. I use the Manjaro Xfce Edition without MS-Windows at all.

Thanks

Due to the Smartphone lineage of the electronics I'd assume a single cell setup for the battery. With a cell voltage of 3.6 - 3.7 Volts that would translate to 36 - 37 Wh. I'm pretty optimistic we'll get a decent mileage out of the system. And as the system can be charged via USB-C its easy to double the capacity by means of a power bank.

SUPER excited about the PinePhone. All the hardware looks great/promising, but the PinePhone would create a new market category for which nothing currently fills the need (a true Linux-capable smartphone device). I'll be watching updates on this one excitedly, and as long as things turn out well, I'll be a day-one customer/user.
