At CES 2018 this week Planet Computers the company that launched their new Android mini PC thanks to a successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign are showcasing their latest hardware that takes the form of a small laptop style mini PC reminiscent of the Psion handheld devices from the 1990’s.

We decided to re-invent the palm-sized keyboard mobile device that will benefit many, who we think are missing using the keyboard on the move. From bloggers and creatives that need to constantly write, to professionals who need to read and write e-mail, create and edit documents and spreadsheets. Gemini is powered by the latest Android OS, supporting all your favourite applications. A number of key applications will also be optimised for the landscape screen and physical keyboard. Gemini will also support Linux as a secondary boot option which provides Linux users with the rich set of Open Source applications. The software also supports voice recognition using the integrated Voice Assist smart button located on the right hand side of Gemini. You can interact with Gemini using voice commands, even when it is closed in your pocket.
