usb type-c on new rpi seems to be only for psu. that's a strange decision

@alexsleepy many boards do that. The Rock Pi 4 comes to mind in that regard.

@Strit yeah, but this way it doesn't make a lot difference from micro-usb they used before, it's just another socket, not a new connectivity possibility

@alexsleepy more power can be transferred with usb-c than micro USB.

@alexsleepy
The blog seems to suggest it has OTG support as well, like the Pi Zero microusb.

@alexsleepy
Confirmed in the comments, USB2 OTG over the C connector.
