Wow, we did not expect the level of interest you all have had in the #PineTime!
- Cost will be approximately 25USD
- Charging dock included in price
- Built-in heartbeat monitor
- Case built of Zinc alloy and plastic
- Battery life measured in days
- Sorry, can't run Linux itself. SoC is nRF52832, which uses a Cortex-M4 core. That's why we need FreeRTOS :)
@PINE64 How would it be used? Like what main tasks would it do on top of time and date? Would it connect to a phone like a #Librem5 or #PinePhone? How would information be shared between the devices? *What* information would be shared between the devices? How might people develop for it? Will it connect to the internet or be airgapped and connect to a local device with e.g. bluetooth. What are the main goals at the moment? Is there a website talking about the concept so far?
@PINE64 Great! I was asking more about things that will come stock or at least what projects or communities currently plan on targeting the device and what they're planning and/or getting up to.
It's one thing having this amazing little device, but if there's nothing to run on it then I can't see it doing so well. What's the current vision of what'll be available to run on the device and what might it do?
