The Astro Slide 5G Transformer as the name suggests is a combined smartphone and pocket PC with a slide out keyboard that has launced via Indiegogo this month with prices starting from $545 or £439. Over the past two years, the company has designed and delivered its award-winning Gemini PDA and Cosmo Communicator devices to over ten thousand backers, who supported the companies mission to kickstart a new mobile computing revolution.
“We are fully embracing the power of 5G and Wi-Fi 6, and we decided to go “all in” – we opted for the fastest 5G processor available, providing the ultimate 5G experience on the Astro. To have a smartphone that can transform into a pocket computer with simple thumb action is truly a leap in usability and functionality – great for both work and play.
Astro Slide is the first 5G smartphone with a keyboard and is the fastest 5G device announced to date. Astro’s revolutionary RockUp slider hinge transforms the powerful 6.53″ touchscreen smartphone into a mini laptop, featuring Planet’s signature tactile backlit keyboard.”
