    After ED has the current 1000+ pre-order Pyra's made and shipped. Will he then have enough money to make the next batch and put them up for sale? Or will he need to do another pre-order to fund the next batch?

    @levi Thank you. I saw somewhere a DSLR belt clip thingy (amazon.com/SUPON-Camera-Holster-Hunter-Loading/dp/B00VMTCB14) maybe i can somehow mount the metal part on the Pyra for example using the lanyard slot, some string and a nut. Would look somewhat strange but then you could draw it like a gun. Or way simpler i need bigger pockets to carry a Pyra comfortably ^^

    Maybe i could glue some velcro to the back, but i think the Pyra is to heavy to hold securely when moving (i tested the Pyra prototype at the gamescom)

    only two more Months™ ;)

    The original BlackBerry devices made fantastic hand axes.

    The long term answer to that is probably to buy a 4G Pyra and a bluetooth headset and ditch the phone. Short term I'm counting on needing a phone too as the software development 'gets there'.

    Thanks - I didn't think you'd mind if I threw in another permutation of the working name.

    Easy.

    Instead of a screen plastics piece, attach a (removable) selfie stick style phone clamp to it.
    Alternatively, a flip up keyboard/controls protective cover (using the hinges) so that it can go in/out of your pocket without tweaking the nubs.

    For the bluetooth device to make sound (even through the speakers), it will need it's own SoC with a DSP. If it crosses that line and becomes a 'computer', then it could also act as a bluetooth handset, dialer, keyboard, game controls, etc... But, by then we're talking about a much more expensive device.

    That was my plan to, at first i thought about using my phone as hotspot for the Pyra, but then my phone dies way to fast.

    That reminds me of these logitech keyboards but they have no gaming controls :(

    Ha I just resurected my Nexus 4. Fantastic phone. I went to the SGS II because it supported packet injection on the native wifi...but I don't really use packet injection much anymore sooo. Yay for enabling 4G on the Nexus 4!

    In a pipe dream world, maybe waaay later the top part could become a phone holder, ditch the cpu pcb and the screen pcb.
    Find a way to connect the sliced pyra´s battery to the phone and you could have a dream dock station for regular phones.

    Not that any of us would give a s**t to it compared to the real pyra, but if producing such is feasible moneywise, it could rock some income for future pyra upgrades.
    And of course, I have no idea or experience on what I´m talking about.

    I'm holding out for a full blown assembly, boot-up (with "nice splash screen"), and demonstration of... at least a command prompt :)

    I had one of these back when my Galaxy S4 wasn't puffing up every battery I throw in.
    Although, a shitty cheap variant with orange keys where the keys bounced (resulting inn douuble lletters)
    It was backlit too

    Oh I had that one, It broke when I tried to take the phone out of the case on the same day I got it. Still used it for a while. Even garbage qwerty keyboards are better then touch once. I miss them so much.

    But i remember that this doesn't work in Germany do to unsupported bands or so, luckily the mobile Internet was fast enough for me anyways.
    It officially doesn't even supported otg but it worked fine anyways :D
    I really liked that phone to but its to slippery, one time it was slowly moving on its own to the edge of the table ^^
    Eventually (while moving on its own again) it got wet, an i could not turn it of (build in battery) in time so the audio got messed up (static noises over the speakers etc.) and a few weeks later it died completely :'(

    So even if this phone is well build, i would strongly recommend a case or something to make the back more rough, like they did one the oneplus one

    That is way better than my attempt to glue a case and a rii mini on a thick piece of cardboard ^^

    No.

    There was no iControlPad2, so there can be no 3.

    This is the Pyramote.
