After the latest progress updates on the Gemini PDA campaign I have now decided to open a new forum dedicated to it. I have divided it into 3 subforums (hardware, Linux and Android). In the next months I'll post there any news and updates about this project, and anyone having an interest on this device is of course welcomed to contribute.

Planet Computers have announced that they will exhibit at the Mobile World Congress Americas show in San Francisco from 12th to 14th September 2017 with a fully working sample. The MWC Americas will be held this year for the first time, and it is being organized by the GSMA association, together with the CTIA US wireless association.

Is anybody here planning to attend this event, and maybe take some photos of the Gemini?

Work on the Gemini PDA project is still underway. In the latest campaign's update, a first photo of the PCB has been published:

These first PCBs will be populated with components in the next few days, so hopefully we'll see a photo of a populated PCB soon.

Ashish Gulhati, who is according to Wikipedia "[...] one of India's first online activists and open source hackers", is currently holding a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for a portable case for the Raspberry Pi Zero, called Noodle PI.

The project includes a high-resolution multi-touch screen, a battery, a power management system, and a camera inside the case. With 7 days still remaining for the end of the campaign, it has already reached CA$ 9,821 of its CA$ 1,024 goal. It's third stretch goal has been enabled, too: the production of the Noodle Key Micro dock, which allows to use a readily available backlit mini-keyboard with the device, making the device a fully fledged UMPC.

On a side note, mr. Gulhati still owns a Zaurus SL-C3100, which he claims to be the most usable among all the portable devices he has owned, although "[...] it was still too small and fiddly, and didn't have backlit keys or built-in WiFi or Bluetooth", hence the need for this project.

For those of you from Austria or a nearby country: there's a 5500 on sale for 25 euros on the Austrian Willhaben site, though no power supply is available so no guarantees it still works:


As before, I'm not affiliated with the seller.
