  • I hope that on the new device the pins that are used to drive the LCD's MOSI, CD and NRES are still brought out

    Really? there are loads of GPIOs available on the chip - wouldn't it be confusing if a few extra pins were brought out that went up and down every time you accessed the LCD?

    but then I came across and Edge-Connector on a breakout board

    Getting those connectors cheaply is a pain - it only works because micro:bit was sold in such high volumes... I really wanted to do something like that with some of the other boards like the Pico but just couldn't find the connectors :(

    As it goes, I'll probably end up using Arduino pinout I think - it fits really well around the LCD itself, and there are loads of super-cheap boards and getting started kits for it.
