Gemini PDA - Hardware / Is it possible to tighten the hinge?
« on: May 21, 2018, 06:47:53 am »
My Gemini's screen tends to flap around a little when I "thumb type." Does anyone know if it is possible to tighten the hinge?

At the moment there's no way I could hold my Gemini like this without the screen closing:

Gemini PDA - Android / Auto-correction
« on: May 18, 2018, 08:19:40 am »
I've found the settings page for "text correction" in the Gemini Keyboard app and have "Auto-correction" enabled but it doesn't appear to do anything. Neither does auto-capitalisation or the double-space full stop in the preferences list.

Has anyone got auto-correction to work yet? At the moment I'm still faster typing on my Blackberry Keyone (with auto-correct).

The Perk/Order checker currently says, "If you selected a US or UK keyboard AND your Order ID is 1-4500, your unit will ship out before mid May. If you did not select a US or UK keyboard layout OR your Order ID is over 4500, your unit will ship end of May."

I believe that the most recent production run is currently being shipped (according to Planet on Indiegogo (2nd May), "UK bound units will ship tomorrow from Hong Kong and so all being well will be at warehouse in the UK mid next week." This would suggest that any order returning the above status on the checker is part of the forthcoming production run. Elsewhere on Indiegogo Planet have stated that SMT for the remaining units starts the week commencing 7th May. I believe that it takes two weeks to go from this point to a completed run, so we're looking at around 18th May for completion. This would suggest shipment to the UK week commencing 21st May, which takes about a week, so arriving in the UK around 28th May.

The next bit is the great unknown. I think the last run took around a week or two to go from arrival in the UK to arriving on backers door steps, but best case scenario would suggest delivery to backers beginning around the 4th June, possibly up to 15th June.

Realistically, therefore, I suspect that anyone who has been told their order will "ship out [from Hong Kong] before mid May" should probably expect delivery during the first half of June. Anyone who has been told their unit will "ship [from Hong Kong] end of May" therefore is probably looking at receiving their Gemini at the end of June. Somewhat later than we have been led to expect.

Does anyone else agree/disagree with this timeline? When do you expect your Gemini to arrive?

If this is accurate I don't know why Planet don't just tell customers to expect delivery in June rather than giving a vague date in May when units will ship from Hong Kong...

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / ZX Vega Comparison
« on: January 15, 2018, 05:20:01 am »
Is anyone concerned about comparisons with the ZX Vega project? I know very little about this project, but I've gleaned from unhappy backers on Twitter that money was pledged but no rewards were forthcoming. Apparently some of the people involved with ZX Vega are involved with Gemini. I'm confident that since people like Martin Riddiford are involved with Gemini it is not simply a means of extorting cash, but I'd be interested to know the thoughts of others.

Hopefully we'll get confirmation in the next couple of days that Planet are starting to dispatch units, which will allay any fears we might have!

Gemini PDA - General Discussion / Has mass production started?

Has anyone heard if mass production has started yet? I believe the plan was for it to start on 1st January but I’ve not heard anything to confirm this.
