Gorgeous Homemade Tablet Powered by #RaspberryPi 3 with Modified Components | #piday

As someone who has yet to jump on the tablet bandwagon – because that’s what it is – I highly understand (and respect) Stefan Vorkoetter’s homemade Pi-powered tablet – especially for the modified components (including some SMT work). The specs are fairly impressive for something packed into a just-over-1-pound package (also, it looks beautiful!):

  • CPU: Raspberry Pi 3B with 1.2GHz quad core ARMv8 and 1Gb RAM
  • Storage: Lexar 32Gb micro-SD card
  • Display: 7″ 800×480 multi-touch capacitive touchscreen
  • Audio: On-board with 25mm speaker, and built-in USB with mic and earphone jacks
  • Ports: One external full-sized USB port, micro-USB port for charging
  • Operating System: Raspbian Jessie
  • Dimensions: 195 × 112 × 17.6 mm (7 11/16 × 4 3/8 × 11/16″)
  • Weight: 484 g (17.1 oz)
  • Battery: 6200mAh LiPoly, giving 4 to 12 hours battery life (6 hours watching YouTube)

Thanks Stefan for sending this in and read about the entire story (and lots of build shots) here at stefanv.com.
