Sometimes I want to travel back in time so ~30 years and show the Computer fans back then what we have today. Just look at this little Pi400, you have an "Keyboard AIO Computer" for under $100 with that power, compared to old clasics like the Atari, Amiga, C64 and so on. No, I would not shock the past people with modern Smart Phones or big gaming PC's, just stuff they can compute (hehe). ^^This looks like fun:
Why should i buy a pyra with OMAP5 with hardware bugs?
I wait a few more month to get thy pyra with the i.MX 8. Performance and battery life will be increased.
The rapsberry is build in hundreds of thousands or millions. That is what lowers the price.
Whoever wants a rapsberry can buy it easily. We don't need Evil Dragon for that. But I'm not interested anyway in a SOC that needs blobs to boot.

This surprises me a bit, since in automotive there are very strict requirements on power consumption and so on. I would have expected that an idle mode is a must.
The worst part of Raspberry is not only uese a lot o blobs, even a blob to boot, even worst is that closed OS for GPU is always on, it has real control (and its backdoors plus bugs) and highest priority, and the user OS you load after it is on lower priority. So you have a OS controlling your machine and you don't control that OS, even you know nothing about it (this also occurs on modern PC x86 CPUs).
sed 's/preorder/order/g'Yeah things are probably tight for development now, but it is great to see this project still going strong. I might hop onto the preorder bandwagon at the end of the year or beginning of the new year.
I'm still more excited for this thing than I am for new consoles or computer parts. I wonder what a small rPi cluster would do for it.
Or does suspend and hibernate not work on the Pyra ? And then it is just work on software to make it work, or there's some reason it can't ever work ?
Ah, I see it. You want the modem on, tracked by telephony towers and wake up the whole system when a call comes, is that the problem ? Then you would need some small cpu somewhere to wake the system up, but could miss the handshake with the phone network, the call or whatever, if awakening is too slow.
(boldtype mine)Lastly, I also found that the PinePhone now resumes faster from suspend on incoming calls, and that the Bluetooth adapter functions reliably. Both of these features, while relatively minor when compared to the major strides made in the past month, are actually very significant in terms of making the PinePhone viable as a daily driver. This, combined with the much improved voice call audio quality in the newest kernel, means that my SIM card now resides exclusively in the PinePhone, while I keep my Android phone for auxiliary tasks. We’ve come a long way since January 2020 and at this pace I feel the PinePhone may become a viable daily driver for many users early next year – I truly believe this.
