Pinebook Pro/PinePhone Pro Will Be Available Late June/Early July, Plus Early Impressions of PineBuds
We finally got an update from Pine64. It looks like from here on out the monthly newsletter will be posted on the 28th of each month, though this is tentative. It’s been a whole year since you’ve been able to buy a Pinebook Pro. Now you can finally get one in late June or early July. Price will remain the same at $219, but the small caveat is the battery is 400 mAh smaller than the 2021 models, which had 10,000 mAh.
So, if you’re like me you probably read Pine64’s April Fools’ Day blog post and took it with a grain of salt. Well, in today’s blog post by the same company, Lukasz Erecinski clarified about that. No, the unicorns aren’t real, but the PineBuds are a thing. Wireless, Bluetooth earbuds that are similar to Apple’s Airpods (but with the probable exception of it being significantly less expensive, with the added benefit of customizable firmware).
