It definitely looks like an interesting device, and at a good price too. Having said that, the module is small partially because it doesn't contain an aerial - which would make it a bit of a nightmare to use. I'm sure someone will be around with a version with an aerial soon.
Very interesting about the built-in Lua though. Nice to see some manufacturers making the effort to actually ship with an easy to use interpreted language, rather than relying on the community.
I guess the question is whether it'll really add much over the ESP8266 - the lack of external flash chip should help with power consumption and final cost though I guess.
Quite a while ago I played around with 'this little ESP8266 guy...'; but could not get it to work as desired... - not so the RF part, but just to properly communicate. May be I give it another shot. Pls do not inspect the soldering points... :/
wow! sometimes I think stuff like that probably needs a capacitor soldered directly onto it - I've had trouble doing similar things without them because of the wire resistance :)
espruino for w600 framework.that is bate version
Wow, do you like to share more details?
Of course, I will submit the results of the porting to github as soon as possible.
Regarding capacitor and - finally - working: see Espruino on ESP8266 ESP-09 - 1 powerful cm2
Seeedstudio's Air602 Wifi module - could that be a next candidate for an Espruino port?
The module has an M3 ARM processor - like the Original Espruino board - but from Winner Micro.
Air602 has still to grow up... but it can skip 'the offs' AI Thinker made and go straight for the ESP8266 validated applications.
A nice review with details on CNXSOFT – EMBEDDED SYSTEMS NEWS site.
