I don’t understand what is, really, a “MiniPCIe slot for Wireless/BLE periphereals”.
So, can you give MiniPCIe full specs ?
In fact, I want to know if it is possible to plug a mini-pcie ssd on this slot.
There are, also, some mini pci express ssd no msata (but with built-in sata bus).
For example, it is the case for all asus eeepc ssd :http://www.ebay.com/bhp/eee-pc-ssd
But, these ssd are not very fast.
However this Super-Talent sdd is better I think: https://www.amazon.com/SUPER-FMT256JCRM-Super-Talent-256GB/dp/B017O21IPW
And it, also, exists in 64 and 128GB.
The Espressobin provides a mini pci express 1x interface, but I don’t know the revision (1.0, 2.0, … )
So, can something prevent these ssd to work with the Espressobin, except for a problem with the disk linux driver(if not ahci) ?
I am very interested to see what chip they decide to include with the retail units, as I am having trouble finding any decent wifi cards that have wireless AC, dual band, bluetooth 4.?, decent linux drivers, and mini pcie, not M.2
I dont know if the intel 7xxx or 8xxx series AC wifi chips have good linux drivers, but they look really good for the price, though they only come in M.2 🙁
They have been very cagey about info on the chip so far, so far as to not even say what chipset maker they plan on going with (atheros, broadcom, etc.)
