August Community update!
- elementaryOS 6 coming to Pinebook Pro
- PineTab RTL-SDR + LoRa expansions & pre-orders this month
- last change for postmarketOS CE
- many community PinePhone projects
- Pinecil coing in September
- PineCube in September
- MUCH more:
* placing and receiving voice calls
* receiving and sending SMS texts
* LTE cellular data for Firefox web browsing, email, SSH etc.
* WiFi client
* AisleRiot Solitary game
That is enough for me to keep my SIM in the PinePhone now. Voice calls and SMS are more reliable with my PinePhone than my old DTEK60 which is being glitchy and no longer gets Android OS updates! ...
... thinks that still need work:
* mobile remix of Geary email still needs work. Crashy and UI still a bit cumbersome
* MMS (texts with media attached) are not received or sent. Maybe this is my fault? I can receive emojis but trying to send them usually fails.
* Only one camera (barely) works
But since I am an old and mostly use my mobile as an actual phone it has been tolerable.
I've tried UBPorts and PostmarketOS too. They seem more performing than Mobian but less stable.
