Banana Pi Zero UMPC Available

Thanks, Varti....

Meanwhile....

OK, kids, I received the BP UMPC a few days ago....

Been having fun with it!

Greatly lil' pocket puter....  

First I ran it with the Ubuntu MATE image.....worked well, but didn't have ethernet support in the image, just WiFi.

So, decided to try another image, one with armbian/Ubuntu/XFCE. Has WiFi and ethernet support.

Performance and keyboard is good and backlight is nice (can change color too...) !

Again, Chris has been great to deal with. Very responsive if I have any questions. It was only about 2 weeks from time I ordered to getting this custom made lil' bad boy....

Here's some photos for your viewing pleasure. In group photos, I've put it alongside my GPD Pocket and MacBook Pro for size comparison.

Photos include some with the different OS images.

Enjoy!

Mark

the RockPro64 is now available (but they emphasize it's only suitable for developers at the moment)

I'm pretty sure it'll be way too big to fit inside the Banana Pi case you have. I reckon it might only just squeeze into the GPD Pocket shell!

Yep, it is too big.....as designed right now.

Still using your banana-pi UMPC, or have you switched over to the Gemini?

Use the Banana Pi and Pocket mostly....

This is due to the inability to connect to the guest WiFi network at my workplace. This severely limits the use of Gemini. If I don't resolve this problem soon, I will get rid of the Gemini, which would be a shame, as I like the physical form of it.

Would be great if you could look at my thread about this problem and let me know if you have any suggestions as to resolution.

Thanks!
