Let's hear it April 15, 2018 Reply IIIJFRIII A step back in the right direction. I would kill for a HTC 7 pro come along again, or a Motorola DROID 4 type phone. Those phones were so amazing. I've been on touch screen for year now and, really wish those phone where still around. Pluss they would be a lot thinner. April 16, 2018 Reply D.A. Syam I'll keep an eye on this one.

April 21, 2018 Reply Jimmy Jamm Cool video bra , FYI those fold down trays on the planes ✈️ have a lot of germs and viruses I wouldn’t use them in the future right on bra 🏄🏼♂️ April 21, 2018 Reply pacman1408 After watching your video I'm convinced that the Sony Vaio P Series Ultra-Portable computer is the best I've ever used in its class. Your thoughts? April 21, 2018 Reply vertitis I'd go for that one… if it wasn't so expensive.I can see this one being very convenient for me atleast.Would like to have illuminated buttons but currently I don't even have a single keyboard with such feature. April 21, 2018 Reply Aaron Barkley I liked the "Captain 2 phones" plug you used to do at the end of your old videos on that "other" channel. April 23, 2018 Reply Vinny LT FINALLY… The Nokia N900 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!! April 23, 2018 Reply White Noise Want It !!!!!!!!!!!! April 24, 2018 Reply White Noise Windows support would be nice … April 24, 2018 Reply Charming_Prism Media tek processor….support = dead. April 24, 2018 Reply JACCO20082012 I really like the idea of this phone. The next gen needs to have a swivel screen so it can be used as a regular phone, but other than that if they can build a more premium chassis and tweak it to be more useful for everyday use, it think it could be a popular phone. April 24, 2018 Reply Romgenas Picture's viewing is not on a center of display April 27, 2018 Reply Nigel Healy Good review. I am intrigued, like one but not want one for the price. This type of problem I currently use an on LG Nexus 7 I replaced the battery and use a clip-on keyboard for sitting typing. Very cheap way to similar. April 29, 2018 Reply Khairil Ashraf Samsudin i always has a hard on for phone with physical keyboard April 30, 2018 Reply burt bricker I had a Motorola Droid, it had a qwerty keyboard, D pad, and 5 MP camera. It was also smaller and the screen was front facing. To bad Motorola doesn't make that phone any more. May 1, 2018 Reply Paul Adrian Moldez This appeals to me for I'm an owner of a Dopod 900 (HTC Universal). Just want a device that will enable me to be productive and get things done. I'm enticed with its form factor, design, and portability. However, the cover removal tool is a little bit too much for me. Why do I need a tool just to open it and insert my sim card? Can I just use my hands? Thanks for pointing out the things that are lacking in this device such as: keyboard back light (in 2018?), the issue on space bar, and some buttons that affects the experience of typing. will keep track of this device and hope that it will reach a stage where it is logical and justifiable to purchase one. May 2, 2018 Reply Tigger Tail Very interesting episode even though I don't see the point of this gadget. I did enjoy the review and found it exciting. Thank you May 4, 2018 Reply Stephen Kramer please please get rid of the touch screen I fing hate all touch screens I dont want to touch my screen!!!!! please make one with a touch PAD. May 5, 2018 Reply mantiscity This made me miss my HP 100x May 5, 2018 Reply johnmonk66 It this a scam? They allegedly have been shipping for weeks but NO ONE actually has one. I ordered one that was said to be available for shipping, but they have not shipped yet. In fact they say they have not shipped any for their Indiegogo backers, haven’t even made them yet. So who are they selling them to if not those of us who invested to start the company’s? Gemini seem to be thieves. May 6, 2018 Reply R.J. Severino A bad android phone with a Not so good keyboard. Come on people… May 6, 2018 Reply morthim it would have been pretty good if they put eink on the top cover. edit: also it has 10 cores, though idk why May 11, 2018 Reply Axel Reezus Can you install Windows on it? May 12, 2018 Reply Unpopular opinion This is great for writers May 12, 2018 Reply Petro Kitsul Can be perfect with Linux OS May 15, 2018 Reply YouTube Premium User GPD Pocket Laptop is so much better May 16, 2018 Reply Jishnu pallaviyil i would buy if it has a 2nd display (small one) to show call/sms notification.. just like that of old communicator models of nokia May 24, 2018 Reply Johnny Juke Take my money when: 1) Lit keypad. 2) Dual camera. 3) Bluetooth. 4) Windows 10. 5) Better phone. 6) Stuff I missed. I was searching electronic pocket organizers when I found this video. I would happily destroy everything Apple if this device was tweeked a little further. May 27, 2018 Reply The Potato can u detach the screen from the keyboard? May 28, 2018 Reply Ramble On feels like he's selling the product May 29, 2018 Reply Harvey Weinstein Needs dinvo style back light like this – https://youtu.be/FgKLlZUpZT4?t=9m31sTheir excuse for not back lighting is nonsense and they know it. They just lazy developers. June 3, 2018 Reply Harvey Weinstein so they put pointless colored leds on the back but left out light for keyboard. assholes. June 3, 2018 Reply Vishnu Jaisingh I love this pda I always wanted to own one in my childhood but never couldn't like the O2 LLI.But this just amazing would love to buy this but hope the planet company fixes the the teething issues mentioned in video.Great going #planetgemini June 5, 2018 Reply pheotonia It is as innovative for tech these days as my Sprint Mogul was for 2007. June 7, 2018 Reply Chathurinda711 if you could run Ubuntu or windows on this , could be rally useful June 7, 2018 Reply Raymond Espinosa GPD pocket is better June 8, 2018 Reply Naiguen Narrainen Can I work on excel on this ? June 8, 2018 Reply Deepak Vasudevan Nokia should bring back the E8 with windows on ARM June 8, 2018 Reply Wendhy Novizar I am about to order one until you say Mediatek chipset. welp… June 10, 2018 Reply Aung SweOo What I do not like is small screen and low RAM, these days screen should be full view. June 13, 2018 Reply Frank Bob I believe this was made for a very small niche market. The folks that put up their cash. This isn't for the world, that's why I love crowd funded projects, their not Apple, Samsung or any other big mogul mass producer of pure crap. June 13, 2018 Reply Ferdinand Zebua The second version should be built around a 7-inch tablet. Or 8-inch. June 16, 2018 Reply Madani fanta Kaba Add external mouse July 10, 2018 Reply Sprits Fal A mediatek chip? Snapdragon I've heard of but this, not at all.

They use windows too. August 2, 2018 Reply zzadin041 I think it would be a good Chromebook August 3, 2018 Reply Bruno Leonardo That's a pretty nice hybrid (phone+netbook), but the price they are asking are pretty steep (600 USD for the 4G version) for what is in. You can grab any flagship with better chipset, screen and quality camera(s). I'm hoping for a revision of this with a second screen for notifications, a camera (at least one main shooter) and external volume/power buttons. Since my Nokia E71 I really miss having a keyboard on my phone. August 3, 2018 Reply The Doopa STOP MAKING ANDROID DEVICES! Windows or Linux. We already have our damned phones. Smh. I'm done, had to vent. 😋 August 4, 2018 Reply Khandakar Istiak Ikram No external display.. This is a huge downfall for this device 😑😑 August 9, 2018 Reply Xeraser I hope you'll remember to review it again when they fix it. I need another phone as I've had an S6 Edge since launch and it's honestly pretty damn bad. This thing looks exactly like my kind of thing and I rarely even call anyone so the phone-related issues wouldn't affect me. August 16, 2018 Reply Kivaagno When is the follow up coming? August 25, 2018 Reply Freedom Fighter do people already forgot the battle between smartphones and PDA? that they started as very different products, and ended up being practically the same one? smartphones started as mobile phones that could send email besides SMS & phone calls, thats all, no touch screen, no fancy OS no nothing, only email. Then PDAs where called handheld computers but couldn't make calls, today the average tech illiterate would say "they are not computers because you can't do X" basically they don't even know what a computer is. So eventually smartphones added features until it could do everything a PDA could, but people being people preferred the product that appeared to be "simpler" so they went for the smartphone and PDAs remained something businessy, then finally died in the branding of PDA but remained as smartphones. September 11, 2018 Reply Irwan Santoso what smart ring is he using? September 25, 2018 Reply Irwan Santoso The 2nd and 3rd iteration will be amazing September 25, 2018 Reply Anthony Carlo Adviento Been using this phone for more than 2 months now and I'm probably one of the few who has it in the Philippines. It's not for all and it will not be popular here. Honestly, it's not an ideal daily driver but it is a reliable secondary phone. For someone who uses the phone more on texting, chatting and answering emails, this is a great phone. I am absolutely loving it October 16, 2018 Reply mkeonine Takes me back to the Nokia e90 days. Ahhh… November 6, 2018 Reply Takavor Vardig Inventor of the original PSION PDA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_TybtULQVo November 6, 2018 Reply Rajib Saha Blackberry Key2 is a better investment! November 6, 2018 Reply hordak82 They have a new Indiegogo for the "Cosmos" – check it out! https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-communicator November 7, 2018 Reply Brendan Allsup let's get rid of the keyboard and replace it with a touch screen like the top display. The lower display could be swapped from keyboard to mouse or maybe even as a second screen if its all touch screen. Kinda like a cooler Nintendo DS.. Your thoughts? November 10, 2018 Reply B Shah There is a new Communicator called the Cosmo from Planet Computers. November 11, 2018 Reply W G I want the cosmo with sailfish X November 12, 2018 Reply Eddie Lyons I had a Psion 3, Psion 3C and Psion Revo way back in the day. They were great little PDAs, and served my purpose perfectly, as pocket-sized PCs. I never had a Psion 5, but always wanted one. The Gemini is an obvious successor to the Psion models, but unfortunately is similarly overpriced as were the Psions. Nevertheless, I'm delighted to see this form factor return, and will be keeping my eye on it with a view to making a purchase in the not too distant future, since that pocket PC niche still isn't quite filled by smartphones or tablets. November 12, 2018 Reply frz0 so much bezel. November 13, 2018 Reply Sam Sung $599, way too expensive November 24, 2018 Reply Illya Kaliyev They should seek partnership with blackberry.Maybe then they can put out a really cool keyboard?

Would fullfill my needs even if i have to drag a oldie phone as well with me December 3, 2018 Reply Kevin Chimusaru Cosmo Communicator is out – improved version December 8, 2018 Reply Phillip Henderson If they make one with all the features of and iPhone and run IOS ….. Top of the line Dual Camera…….a version without the old school key board .. a built in bigger battery .. the ability to use the bottom key board as a dual screen for multi tasking ( working and watching YouTube). Similar to the axiom zte……awwwwww f it. ..Apple just buy the company and make it happen. December 16, 2018 Reply GhostOfGor Two big questions. Coming from a Galaxy Note, can you utilize a pen device or change the battery unlike newer phones? I hate touch keyboards and having a physical one(despite the learning curve) isn't a problem because we all had to learn the quirks of the touch one having been trained on a physical one. I am interested in the Note 9 as a pseudo laptop replacement but this still might be a decent choice if you aren't a power user or an Instagram model. Is it loaded with bloat ware? Most phones are and not having to root the phone might be another selling point. December 17, 2018 Reply Kostas S they could just sell only a keyboard exactly like gemini's…… December 18, 2018 Reply Dave Grant Basically a android phone with a built in keyboard. But it’s No where near what the top flagship phones are. You can just get a Bluetooth keyboard case December 18, 2018 Reply Syndrome 1 Ugly and huge. Why does it have huge bezels? I'd rather use a laptop. How silly it would be to use this thing. All i can think of is why? December 25, 2018 Reply Daniel Stafford The advantage of this unit is it can now run 5 Linux distributions. December 31, 2018 Reply Crow Migration How did I miss this! I'm all about the weird phones. Though it's missing too much for me to consider, it is cool. January 1, 2019 Reply Matanumi I feel like this phone is very close to a grand slam but sadly struck out on a full count January 7, 2019 Reply Johny Indigo This is a cool for a one handed person like me tho, KIMBERLY!!! 😊 January 25, 2019 Reply Krauser wolfgang GPD win2 with Intel CPU and win10 OS is much better… January 25, 2019 Reply Kessler Space Industries How much is this? I like this. February 2, 2019 Reply sam sung >Android into the trash it goes.bring back windows mobile ffs ! February 8, 2019 Reply Costa Gauci Would love a small screen on the front to show notifications or have the keyboard go all the way round.

April 24, 2019 Reply John Maksym What's wrong with putting in some sort of glow in the dark lettering on the keyboard. July 2, 2019 Reply Da Bishop This thing runs kali bruv. On-screen keyboard doesn't work for that. It pwns. July 11, 2019 Reply Yosandy santos Fix it ….,. July 23, 2019 Reply 05Rudey Loved the vid, thinking of getting one of these and duel booting it with Kali Linux, may I ask what Smart watch you used to pair with it and the ring on your right hand, is that a NFC smart ring? September 1, 2019 Reply Stefos You can buy the Psion 5mx, 5mx Pro and Psion 7 OR the Psion Netbook/Netbook Pro instead of this item………..Save your money and just use your cell phone for the rest.
