Former Psion designers return with a fresh take on the PDA

Former Psion designers return with a fresh take on the PDA
From Engadget - January 9, 2018

The Gemini comes packing a 5.99-inch FHD display and a 10-core MediaTek System-on-Chip paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. That figure is expandable with the built-in microSD card slot, which can push that figure past the 256GB mark. And in that regard, it's pretty much a generic Android smartphone, albeit with the ability to dual-boot Linux and operate with a built-in keyboard.

On the other side of the clamshell is the 4,220mAh battery and the aforementioned keyboard, which is as cramped and tall as you remember from the Psion days. The travel is certainly luxurious for a device of this size, but the distance between the keycaps is a problem. It may be an issue that you grow to overcome with practice, but I am not sure my meaty, wide fingers are going to get any smaller, no matter how much I wish they would.

Much like Samsung, and several other Android phones, the device can also work as a desktop, should you buy the additional accessories. Two USB-C ports on the phone can be connected to a USB and Ethernet hub and HDMI-out, enabling you to hook this up to a keyboard, mouse and external display.
