Heard about the MNT Reform "frankenstein"

I wondered what the specs will look like, if it will have a day battery life while being used even for web browsing with screen on, the ports, headphone jack, if it will have the imx8m, etc…
And of course when you think the crowdfunding will begin for it.
I hear it is 5 inches you intend to make it, I would love that, but I also wonder how much it will weigh too. :slight_smile:

Anywho, do you know when the release date or heck, even the beta version will be out? Thanks in advance!

There will be some more information in a few weeks. At the moment the project is still in the usability research phase, we’re not focusing on technical stuff too much.

Alright, well, I only have three main requirements that I would like if possible, no backdoors obviously, day battery life for audio playback + screen on. A few usb 3.0’s would be good too though. in addition to a micro sd slot/emmc slot.

That all being said, it is not my project clearly, but I also neglected to ask, how much do you plan to charge for this device when its made you think? what’s your aim?

Also, on an unrelated note, I appreciate you planning to do this, its very irregular, but it sounds amazing.

I look forward to your news and crowdfunding.

Actually, I also neglected to ask will this device be upgradeable in anyway shape or form? Aka, processors and ram.
If not, its not a huge issue, but it would be an awesome idea.

Yes, the idea is to use the same modules compatible with MNT Reform. Just the “carrier” will be a lot smaller.

Great, it keeps sounding better. :slight_smile:

Incidently, I am still curious about pricing, and if you will make there be at least one internal usb slot, for wifi. I think that would save space over an entire wifi card.
Maybe that would give me or other people, more room for solid state drive nvme? Idk, just a thought! :wink:

I look forward to seeing the specs.
