I really like it, kind of interested in the screen resolution.
Also wonder if the Pi 4 module (when its sold)
will be a drop in upgrade?

I like the handle / stand - kind of reminds me of OLPC. Its smart!

Perhaps we could know what we think about it when/if it no longer is vaporware. :lol:

Agree! :lol:

We work hard to make sure it's more than a prototype on our desk... and we've got some good progress!

maybe the 4B module will work as well?

We are using Compute Module 3+L, if the future CM4 is pin compatible with CM3+ then there will be a chance to upgrade. (Of course heat dissipation will be another topic)

I love it. It's so, well, cutie.

But why so mean with GPIO pins, only 6 ?
Memory in C++ is a leaky abstraction .

The decision was made that there will never be a Pi4A.
On compute model no definitive statement has been made besides official announcement blog -- so there may be no CM4 either:

What about the Compute Module?

CM1, CM3, and CM3+ will continue to be available. We are evaluating options for producing a Compute Module product based on the Raspberry Pi 4 chipset.

I know :roll: I feel the same.

But the features we want to build in (Gyro, MCU, WiFi/BT, Charging..etc) eats up most of the pins, and the ones for HDMI video couldn't be re-mapped.

Here's the latest schematics:

Plans not to manufacture a model 4A makes a bit of sense to me because the legacy USB on the 4B is already routed to the USB-C socket and the Ethernet port is built into the SOC.

At the same time, a Pi that keeps the PCI express lanes available rather than turning them into USB3 ports could be useful for a number of applications. Having a PCI express slot could also be useful for a Cutie Pi.
