The PinePhone keyboard case


This looks so cool. The original PSION was the only PDA I thought gave my beloved Palms a run for their money, so it’s great to see the form-factor still has fans:

The keyboard case is compatible with both the PinePhone and PinePhone Pro and features a clam-shell design. It uses pogo pins located on the smartphone’s midsection and attaches by replacing the default back cover. This add-on effectively turns the PinePhone (Pro) into a PDA with an in-built LTE modem.

The keyboard case is supported by multiple mobile Linux operating systems including, but not limited to: Manjaro Linux, DanctNIX Arch Linux, postmarketOS and Mobian.

I wonder if anyone has FreeBSD running on one of these things?
