Planet Computers has launched and successfully funded our Indiegogo campaign for Gemini, a mobile device with a full QWERTY keyboard that fits into a pocket.
The campaign was launched in March 2017 and today the Gemini is fully funded at $2,512,983 USD, which is 280% over our original funding goal.
Connected to the internet via 4G/Wi-Fi and equipped with a physical keyboard, Gemini can be used for messaging, social media and blogging on a physical keyboard. With the device, you can save content to cloud-based services such as Dropbox or Microsoft OneDrive and edit Word documents or Excel spreadsheets without having to open a laptop.
Gemini is a fully functioning mobile phone: make calls, send texts, surf the web, browse and download apps from the Google Play store, all whilst typing on a physical QWERTY keyboard.
Gemini resembles the popular PDA devices of the 1990s and 2000s, such as Psion Organiser and Sharp Netwalker. The large battery in the Gemini provides more than enough power to enable users to surf, chat, socialise and do business wherever they are.
“The mini keyboards on PDAs in the 1990 were incredibly easy to use and had a loyal fan base of millions. We are now combining this form factor with the fast processors and 4G/Wi-Fi networks of today to deliver a new level of productivity,” comments Dr Janko Mrsic-Flogel, CEO of Planet Computers.
“There has not been a new mobile device form factor since the tablet launched in 2010. Gemini provides the combination of modern connectivity, day long power, touch typing and the full range of apps in a device that you can hold in your palm and weighs less than half a kilo. The keyboard is back.”
