NewsEstimote LTE Beacons: Cortex M4, LTE, BLE5, GPS Pin

This is a really interesting innovative product and the article announcing it is actually really good too.
Announcing LTE Beacon for asset tracking | Reality matters[^]
And programmable via JavaScript...of course. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:

from article:
Smartphone without a screen

The best way to think of this new IoT device is to imagine it as a small smartphone, but without a screen. It can last years between charges and the cost is similar to a beacon. It has cellular LTE connectivity, built-in GPS, and Bluetooth radio. And it is also possible to create and download apps that run on the LTE beacon


From the article:
We are shipping LTE Beacons as Developer Kits. Each box will include two devices and the total cost will be $129 + shipping. We can ship anywhere in the world.

Since the LTE Beacons have active data plans and talk to the LTE networks of our telecommunication partners as well as use our cloud services, there will be an additional subscription fee. For the beacons in the dev kit, it will be $2 per device per month, and the first 3 months are free. The devices can be still used and programmed without an active subscription, but the cloud connectivity won’t be possible.
