Wow, we did not expect the level of interest you all have had in the #PineTime!

More info:
- 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 or ? 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?

@OTheB Those are almost all software matters. Like all of our other devices, we want to make it as open as possible, allowing you to run different firmware if you wish.

What we do know is that it will communicate with a local device over Bluetooth (supports up to BT5.0, including LE).

@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?
