Mike Halsey has posted some useful hints and tips on the FB Gemini Planet page for all of you that have already received their Gemini:

• The Agenda app isn't finished yet, it'll be available in the Play Store soon
• The alert LEDs app isn't finished yet either, so you can't currently map LEDs to contacts and apps, again it's coming soon
• The Linux installer will be available soon as a separate download on the Planet Website, watch for an Indiegogo update
• The cover removal tool is rather well hidden in the packaging, it's buried in the dark blue paper wrapper
• Note that not all Android apps support some hardware keyboard functions like Ctrl-X, Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V
• With the PDA open, if you get a phone call, you can just close the case to answer the call by holding it to your ear. This does not cancel the call
• with the PDA closed, you can answer a call by pressing the silver Google Assist button
• Not all apps pinned to the Gemini App Bar are pre-installed, they are quick-links to the app in the Play Store

Useful shortcuts:
• Press Fn + R to take a screenshot
• Press Fn + .? to open the emoji panel
• Press Fn + ,/ to open the symbol panel
• Press and hold a key to display international characters
• Press Fn + A to display the task switcher
• Press Planet + Tab to switch between open apps
• Press Fn + D to display the desktop
• You can press Fn + Planet to start a phone call

REMEMBER - If you have two-factor authentication set up on your Google Account to send you an SMS message, leave your SIM in your current phone until you have performed the initial Gemini setup.

I have pinned this thread for better visibility. Thanks Mike!

after a request from two users on the Indiegogo Gemini PDA page, I have now created a new forum called Gemini PDA - Regional Subforums, and two subforums there for discussions in French and German:


What I'd like to ask is, if possible, to find someone who's willing to moderate each of these forums and, of course, who's fluent in one of these languages; it seems that we already have a candidate for the French forum anyway.

I'm now trying to find the German and French language packs for this site, so that you'll be able to have the whole forum localized, too.

If anybody would like a new forum in their language to be added, feel free to ask here!
