This has the potential to be the ultimate LGPT handheld.

At first glance, it doesn't really seem to be anything special versus the other dingux handhelds floating around right now. But there's two things about this particular handheld that really set it apart: full size USB host port, and an expansion port with some GPIO. This means likely USB MIDI devices could work on this.

Obviously this is all just guesswork at this point (it releases at the end of the month), but if we got LGPT ported to it and the MIDI stuff pans out, this could be really interesting!

The price is great at $55, but you have to assemble it yourself. Looks easy enough though, so it should be fun.

I'll order one when they're available. If anyone knows any developers I'm happy to pay for a port of LGPT. I imagine it will be pretty easy since the linux/dingux ports are already working.

Full size USB host? Hell yeah! I'm into that for sure.

That must be a mistake, they're probably referring to the speaker. But yeah if it was mono that would kill it.

I'm sure you're right but even if it was mono it would be worth it for handheld tracker-style midi sequencing.

I heard a rumour that trash80 might be working on something that would be the end all for handheld midi sequencing, sampling, and tracking. For $50 this could still be cool though. And there's always the possibility of new software being developed for it beyond LGPT.

As catskull said, I'm sure it means Audio: Earphone Jack AND 0.5Watt 8Ω Mono speaker

@catskull Looking forward to seeing what you make of it!

Looks like lots of  clones of the OGA.

LGPT build would be nice. I'm not sure what goes into compiling it. Are they just an ARM Debian build?

I'm not a programmer. Just a casual Linux user, is there build instructions for it? There's nothing's in the README.md
