Hi guys,

just came across this:
https://pine64.com/product/pinephone-community-edition-mobian-limite...

Linux powered smartphone, open for developers, relatively cheap.

Wouldn't this be a good basis to take it apart and use the components to refresh an old HPC, essentially turning it into a docking station for the phone? What do you think?

I understand they are coming out with a keyboard for that thing. I think if you wanted to use this as an HPC it would be a simpler route to just buy their keyboard and the phone when both are available.

Oh that's interesting - didn't know that. I've seen their tablet being offered with an optional keyboard. Need to check their site again :-)

The $50.00 price attracts me.

On twitter, seems like they decided on a layout?

Interesting, especially with an external keyboard. @C:Amie - the video link is a little off. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BH8DRyKUZDg%3F
