    F(x)tec Pro¹ - Slider Smartphone with physical keyboard

    Hesitant to double post, but there's been some juicy developments imo, so I think it's worth it. Some Japanese customers have received their units. This Taketyon person posted a bunch of photos here: twitter.com/JH174941/status/1195491135419867137 Links to the original resolution images...

    F(x)tec Pro¹ - Slider Smartphone with physical keyboard

    First units are finally shipping to customers now. Non-EU/US first, but those should follow before the end of the week. Still not my device in this, but I suppose they're making way for that soon™. And as I don't think they had been posted here before, EskeRahn's blog posts about his...

    F(x)tec Pro¹ - Slider Smartphone with physical keyboard

    That's interesting information, thank you. I was going to wait until the first units actually ship, but now is also a good moment I suppose. There have been a myriad of delays and dates shifted right when the last promised arrived. Communication is sparse and spread mainly across channels...

    HD partitions visible only when plugged into motherboard and not when plugged as USB device ???

    Writing more data to a drive that had some corrupted one way or the other before might not be the greatest idea to be honest.

    Latest update: Keymats are here, how strong will the logo plate be - and pretty cases.

    They are much better, yet there are still marks visible in the video which are fairly similar to what I've seen in real before. What makes you think that these are a complete non-issue now? The same source who says they are much improved also thinks the paint is necessary for good looks. Also...

    Latest update: Keymats are here, how strong will the logo plate be - and pretty cases.

    While the current revision had been improved a bit, I've seen the previous case in person at Gamescom. And boy, you do see these marks in normal lighting situations. Check the Gamescom thread for some photos that were taken by community members. Though there's the caveat that at least my photos...

    EpicGames Client ?? What do you think about it ?

    HumbleBundle used to have a direct activation link for Steam at some point. At least I got that for one bundle, but then never again. If this comes at the cost being able to give away unneeded keys, then it's not as great as it sounds. But that's details as HumbleBundle does have a gifting...

    Latest update: Keymats are here, how strong will the logo plate be - and pretty cases.

    Cases look a lot like I expected them to. It makes a huge difference. Still bulky, but kinda refined cases. Neat. Also, dog.

    Librem 5 phone by Purism

    I might've mis-interpreted that then. A phone without any hardware keyboard is even less enticing though.

    Librem 5 phone by Purism

    My F(x)tec Pro1 is supposed to ship soon... hopefully for real this time without additional delay, but I'm kinda used to waiting on devices. It does not have the same extent of freedom as a Pyra-device, but it has a sliding keyboard (N950 angled style), which ranks higher for me in priority...

    Welcome to the updated site!

    There's a "top of page" button on every post except the first one on top instead. I assume the Home page is missing as it's currently being revamped? It's where the Pyra main page should be and the link has the same pattern as the one for the Pandora which works.

    We need more drama. So here's another video.

    The lid being closed doesn't press a button, but I wish it did. Back when I was porting my game to the Pandora, I wanted to go an extra step and pause the game automatically when the lid is closed. Best I found was a program that returned if the lid was closed or not... which wasn't exactly...

    Welcome to the updated site!

    I didn't mind it either way, but it looks very close to as it was before, yeah. When you do a side-by-side comparison you can see still see minimal differences in rendering, especially some text being slightly wider for some reason... but let's not get hung up by that, really. Wouldn't be able...

    Welcome to the updated site!

    From what I can tell it's because the font selection has changed. On the old boards* it seems to have been 'font-family: "Helvetica Neue",Helvetica,Arial,sans-serif;' while now it is "font-family: 'Segoe UI','Helvetica Neue',Helvetica,Roboto,Oxygen,Ubuntu,Cantarell,'Fira Sans','Droid...

    Welcome to the updated site!

    I'll say it: The new like system is messy and useless. If it's possible to easily reduce it back to just a like/thanks, I'd recommend doing so. It incorporating the emoji designs I hate probably adds a lot to my opinion but even if you'd replace these graphics it's still pretty messy. You can't...

    A video. Again. Mostly about cases.

    That's implying the paint would impact the function of the device. It shouldn't if done right. I feel like this is getting more heated than it should. I don't see how imperfections make the device better, though, especially when the original plan was to avoid these as much as possible. Is...

    A video. Again. Mostly about cases.

    As expected I see many being against painting. I don't think I need to convince you otherwise, but I wanted to throw out some more thoughts: We got nasty discolorizations right around the logo part. You know, that part with the fancy, glowing logo. It's gonna be an odd one to talk around. "Oh...

    A video. Again. Mostly about cases.

    I'll probably be the odd one out here, but: Paint that stuff. Even the cheap paint job on my Pandora is still holding out fine. Has scratches here and there, but it's black underneath, so it doesn't look weird. I also prefer how the Pandora case feels with the paint compared to the Pyra. The...

    VR headset?

    HTC Vive and Valve Index still have an extended mode which makes them appear as an additional screen. They still require SteamVR to be running, though, so no Pyra (OpenHMD may work for the Vive, but with severe limitations and no software support if you get it running). For good reason. Proper...

    Release Easy RPG Alpha PND for Pandora

    I've been somewhat busy with other projects, so I haven't had a more detailed look at what's really taking up all the time on the Pandora, but sounds interesting. My game isn't exactly picture heavy, I'd say, rather than the boss battle in question having a lot of moving and non-moving events...
