I don't know if this is news or not, but I found this Qualcomm based SoM that claims to support Android Things, good specs, with power management, battery charging, GPS. Coming soon hopefully.

It looks like Pin 21 of J8 (labelled MISO) on the Pico iMX6UL main board is actually MOSI. Here's a trace from the board with nothing connected. Who should I hassle about this? TechNexion?

Well, that took a little longer than expected. Most of the time was consumed defining the font. The white section is a piece of paper, I'm experimenting with defusers. I'm using an stm32 to drive the display. Now I need to define protocol to control it from Android Things, probably something over SPI.
