Now that PineTab is available as 'Braveheart' I cannot wait for the production version (sporting USB-C?) to have the whole family converted to Pine64/Ubuntu Touch devices.

It has been said that "these devices are the equivalent of the PinePhone Braveheart edition and are not final product".
Does that mean that there will then be a PineTab "Community Edition: UBports" as for the PinePhone ?

@libremax Nope, there won't be any 'editions' of the PineTab per se, but we may rotate the OS it ships with
I just got a notification from DHL that my PineTab has shipped.
At this point in time what should we expect of the functionality of the PineTab?
Looking at https://gitlab.com/ubports/community-ports/pinephone and https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/PineTab I can't see much general info on how to start using it...
Do we have to boot from SD card?
Is this the best place to get builds?
@halucigenia Mine too, arriving today apparently
I believe it comes pre-installed with ubports
What state of development it'll be in is less clear
I'm presuming that it'll track the pinephone pretty closely as it's more or less a different form factor for the same internals, but I guess we'll see
@theare27 I can't believe it, I just checked and mine is arriving today too, I expected it in a couple of days. Next day delivery from China to the UK - wow.
Looking forward to reading your experiences
Got it, typing this from the PineTab...
so far i found a few issues (for me) - it seems like sd-card can't be read
and bluetooth doesnt work.
oh and it wont power on when sdcard is in
Checking my bluetooth headhones on my PinePhone on dev shows that they are working. I will switch to the dev channel. And
I see that the PinePhone is just getting an update on dev too.
The PineTab had UBPorts Ubuntu Touch installed and no updates were available on the stable channel.
The device connected to wifi no trouble.
Morph Browser works OK to access the web - Youtube videos played but the sound was a bit disappointing.
No sound through headphones and Bluetooth headphones not connecting.
Updating to dev now...
Bluetooth still not working on PineTab on dev...
sd-card is now usable after the fix provided in above thread from Kevin Keijzer
still not bootable with sd-card in though
Is rotation working for you guys? I'm stuck in portrait it seems. Rotation itself seems to work. At least it did in the 5min on Mobian.
Rotation not working, but I am stuck on landscape.
@OldGrumpySwede On the telegram group someone said that the panel has been switched in the last 6 weeks or so and therefore most of the other distros are not configured for it yet. In my own tests out of postmarketOS, manjaro and mobian only the latter worked-ish so far.
Got mine yesterday
Very nice it is too.
I can confirm that after flashing last nights dev build:
Bluetooth is not working
Rotation seems to be not working
Camera not working (at all)
Dekko seems crashy
Account setup not yet possible for online accounts - for me anyway even with @rubencarneiro fix I used to use on a OnePlus 3T
What I expected. Need to work out a few things of course and lots of bugs to start to hammer out but hey I have a tablet in my hands that came with a keyboard and trackpad that is a little buggy but - it runs Ubuntu Touch so I am happy
Lots to do and need to crack on with it.
Got a couple of Kingston Canvas Select Plus microSD Card SDCS2/64 GB SP Class 10 to test with.
Worked fine and formatted OK on the PinePhone.
The PineTab booted OK with it in and recognised it but would not format it. I got "There was an error while formatting the device.
I noticed a small switch next to the SD slot so i changed the position - switched it down towards the bottom of the tablet and rebooted. It still booted OK and formatted the device.
Did I just find the SD card write protect switch?

@arubislander Have either of you worked how we can boot from the SD Card yet? ie with another distro ?
