Introducing Beepberry - a portable e-paper computer for hackers, designed for chatting on Beeper
I seem to have an issue with mine where the alt key show 'on' but I cannot get punctuation marks like a '.' to come up. Makes it hard to cd .. and type in file names. What passes as a 'tab' auto fill on this when typing?
UPDATE: Well the 64GB SD card I ordered arrived so when I got home I removed my case removed the card I was using put in the new 64GB and started to reinstall everything. Post drivers / OS it worked and as I installed frotz (most important downtime hobby. I will finish all the Zorks) and other apps I would keep testing and as of this morning and a few reboots still working. So prob something I did. The one thing I didn't do was reverse screen meaning I had tried black text / white screen. This time I didn't attempt that.
Not a hacker, just a Beeper user, but I have wanted a finished product like this for so long. Inability to plug into modern chatting services is perhaps the biggest factor holding me back from going full “dumb phone,” a change I’m otherwise confident would be a massive improvement for my own life and many others’!
Looks like it's no longer available to purchase. Website doesn't even mention it.
Does Beeper have the ability to receive calls as people would make calls on third party apps like Messenger, WhatsApp, Instagram, etc?
I need emergency device with solar panel and a month working time on one charge
This is awesome and cute!
any idea on the battery life?
