Is there a pocket compatible version of the Tinkerboy?

Pretty much as the title says. I could probably design it myself but if it has already been done I don't want to waste the time.

If you’re into DIY, check out the Gaboze Pocaio

Thanks. I looked at the pocaio, but I don't want to use the screen they have chosen, I was hoping for one that doesn't expect a specific screen.

That project is open source so if you had a screen in mind, you could modify the gerbers to whatever screen you want. I've thought about doing that myself too, but I want to build a "stock" one first.

which screen did you choose?

If you have been naughty paying your dues in your previous credit history, you got registered with one or all the three main credit bureaus, and you won’t qualify for a loan from a bank. The good thing about payday loans is that lenders there couldn’t care less, so why not try this out when you are really in need of emergency money, but it won’t do much for your credit history either even if you are diligent with your payment – payday loan lenders do not report you anyhow....

If that was for me, I used the one recommended by the build guide for the gaboze pocaio. I wish I could find a connector for the screen instead of having to solder it directly to the board.
