You all love the @PINE64 #Pinephone, right?

You also like #LoRa, right?

If so, you'll love this : LoRa on the Pinephone!

YES, thanks to the LoRa backplate, you can send and receive LoRa messages on the Pinephone!

@JF That makes me curious, could you have a backplate with LoRa, ZigBe, QI charging and/or a fingerprint reader? If you just have access to a full I2C namespace and with how small those chips are...

@gudenau This is exactly the purpose of the pogo connector on the back of the Pinephone ;-).
I think backplates with wireless charging and finger print reader are already in the works (in addition to the keyboard).
And of course, you could DIY any other device that talks I²C (or SPI if you use an MCU that bridges SPI and I²C like this one).
