    Lets see... We've touched on keyboard layout, camera presence/absence ... what is next/controversial? Shall we discuss screws?

    As long as the power adapter uses the One True plug type (NEMA 1-15), we'll be fine.

    Don't forget, I asked about the color.

    How soon will we be able to upgrade the screen. Such low resolution.

    We need more RAM.

    Why doesn't it have a modern standard port ( type C) for charging? And what's up with a USB 3 port that doesn't work?

    The logo is ugly, and didn't even win, everyone just voted against the good logo.


    Responding to those should keep us busy for a little while.

    Don't forget that the SoC is too old and slow, the case design needs glass backs and metal sides or it sucks, screen should have no bezels, need to get rid of the clam shell and make a real phone, why isn't the keyboard area detachable, what is with the full sized SD slots microsd wtf, lanyard strap hole for carrying around your neck is stupid, how do I operate it with one hand while I masterB8 ride the subway standing up, how does the mouse click work without any dedicated mouse buttons, where do I plug in my USB C headphones, should the headphone jack & mic be Apple or Standard pins, what is with the resistive screen technology all the good phones use capacitive, why does the editor on this board think resistive and capacitive must be misspellings, can I have the German characters in the Fn layer removed since I don't speak German and if the keyboard shows characters I don't know then it clearly can't work for me, how is the feel for touch typing, how do you hold it for a phone call, with modifiers for shift, ctrl, alt and Fn on the shoulders how the hell do I type normal characters???????????????????????????????

    Why doesn't this device meet my specific and ill-thought-out requirements that are already met by other products on the market? What about my other requirements that are technically impractical? I'm very angry that the Pyra is being developed and expect them to do something about it!

    It's both!
    We should get all shoppers to name at least the following characters before they buy any keyboard: '~ ` | \ / # ^' and tell us exactly what SysReq does.

    Why isn't the pyra held together by glue like any modern device. And where are the broken off corners and the notch on the screen.

    Also, will you stock the grease we need to make our Pyras as slippy as a modern phone?

    Yeah the digs on modern devices is fun, but I wouldn't have minded the Pyra getting a little more streamlined compared to the Pandora.

    That being said I'll be happy to get one no matter what shape.
