Interesting device, nice to see that GPD keeps developing and releasing new UMPCs. I guess the major selling point of the MicroPC will be its price (299$!). I wonder how it compares with the Pocket 2, size wise it seems to be on par, although it is probably more thick.

This is actually quite interesting, mostly because of the RJ45 and serial port. The keyboard layout is a bit weird. I will keep an eye on this one.

Agree with other comments....

Like that it has all the ports in such a little device....

Keyboard and touchpad are a bit different....

looks not that small...

..not really sure what I am seeing here, but a Ubuntu work in progress / proof of concept perhaps ? That would be good!

Note: the rotated background icons, indicating the screen is (same as Zaurus, Gemini or GPD devices) a smartphone LCD meant to run in portrait mode as default. Possibly in this demo just using fbdev (without rotation) ?

Still, this is quite promising...

I wonder how finalized the overall design and layout (keyboard) is. The indiegogo page is not up yet and it would be nice to provide some feedback for this particular model.

A youtube clip has surfaced : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NF4Q9BcYhk (Trial operation on Micro PC touch pad)

The demo clip does not show it, but I suppose you could drive the touch pad with your right thumb and the mouse buttons on the left with your left thumb. Maybe not too bad operation while holding it.

Supplies will be limited because Intel are struggling to keep up demand.
Right at the end The Phawx says that GPD will be launching a non-intel based device, presumably because of Intel supply shortages..whether that means AMD or Arm wasn't stated.

Yes, I have no self control. Backed for one. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gpd-micr...llest-mini-pc#/

I like that they fitted every port you could ever need. I guess a mix/combination of this with the gpd pocket would be great.
It's nice to see the UMPC category of devices has been revived.
