“The Pyra is the vastly improved successor of the OpenPandora.A way faster CPU, 5″-HD Screen, backlit keyboard.The Pyra revolutionises mobile computing by being the first genuinely upgradable pocketable system. The CPU and display PCBs are socketed! This means there is no need to buy a new device every few years – you can simply update it with a new CPU board or improved display when it becomes available. This makes the Pyra a lot cheaper for those who play the long game and also takes care of the environment!”
