PineTab beta/early adopter?
#1
I'm not much of a software developer, but I know my way around most versions of *nix. I have used several different SBCs for various projects. My employer uses my python powered raspberry pi timeclocks to this day, going on 5 years now. I have a couple of BBBs and am working on a 4 channel temperature sensing cape I designed in KiCAD and had the boards fabricated by OSHPark. I liked my C.H.I.P until it, with the company, died. I even have an Orange Pi PC. I am good at soldering and own a variety of equipment.  

I work full time as a Linux sysadmin at an ISP and use Linux and BSD extensively in my daily life. I have various desktops, laptops, and android tablets(stock is not an option). 

I am currently RHCE, CCNA, and LPIC-303 certified with an active amateur radio license (Extra class + VE) and Mensa member. 

I'd love to contribute in any way I can to the PineTab and plan to grab a Pinebook Pro once I am able.

Whether or not there will be an early adoption run of the PineTab is still up in the air. All indications so far, though point to seeing them available this year. If this changes, I'm sure Luke will let us know. If you're interested in being a developer with the land of Pine, try sending @Luke a message.

There should be. The reason why its pushed back continually is caused by the long string of manufacturing/ shipping issues we've experienced in the past 6 months - some being our fault and others purely circumstantial (HK unrest, COVID-19).
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

Thanks for the quick response. The PineTab is practically a dream device for me. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

What is the status of the Pinetab?  I was surprised that there is NOT a forum section for the PineTab yet.

I work for an infrared camera manufacturer that would be very interested in getting an early Beta unit for evaluation/testing.  We have 2 of the older Pine64 model A boards to start development but really want to use the PineTab as a 10" display and wireless central controller running Linux (or Android) hooking up to multiple USB cameras (both visible and infrared).  Is there also a possibility of getting the tablet even cheaper WITHOUT the battery?  We are a AC adapter/wall powered application.

Thank you in advance,
Lennie

Take a peak at the latest Community Update post on the main site. The Tab is currently on hold, but not shelved.

Pine also tends to wait until devices are launched before setting up subforums for new products.

Thank you for the quick response.  I'm disappointed because this looked like the ideal opportunity for a product expected to ship in the 10k+ qty per month.  I'll check back on the status to see if there is any update.
