'“Cosmo Communicator” is a product that is quite wacky but unbearable for those who sting.'

Man, I'd like to know what that sentence really was in Japanese. smile.gif

My favourite:
"It's a little thing, but it's irresistible for those who stab"

A non-google translator gives:

"Cosmo Communicator" is a rather quaint product, but it is not the only one who sits in the same way.If you like the gadget, check it, and you won't lose it.

Makes a bit more sense smile.gif

Interesting reading, thanks for the links. I think this is the first time I've seen a picture of the back of the Cosmo.

I hope the specification from PC Watch, saying that "Type-C port supports HDMI output" is correct. It would be nice to not have to depend on a proprietary adapter for that. The next sentence, saying "USB PD is not supported, but one port is compatible with MediaTek's fast charging technology 'Pump Express'" is a tad worrying though. I was under the impression that, according to Update #8, "Both the left hand side and right hand side USB-C interfaces will be able to charge the Cosmo".

Perhaps I'm reading too much into a pair of news articles. Both claims the Cosmo supports Bluetooth 5.0, which seems unlikely, as the Helio P70 (which one of the articles calls "Helio 970"), according to MediaTek, only supports up to Bluetooth 4.2, so maybe other stated facts aren't completely correct either. Time will tell.

I can't help but find it a tad ironic that news articles from Japan spreads quicker than the official communication from Planet Computers, but well, that's how it is. Either way, I'm grateful for the information.

Edit: And, oh. Cosmo Update #23 is out, offering a link to details pertaining to a backer meetup in Tokyo. While in the other end of the world for me, I hope those attending has a great time.

Awesome, thanks for sharing! smile.gif

Btw, regarding that second link: I wonder if the reviewer ever saw anything else besides macOS 'cause to me the dock looks almost the same as the AmigaOS 4.1 dock, not the macOS dock.

There is one new Japanese site with new and relatively sharp images.

Not sure what Google Translate is trying to say here... can someone here read the original Japanese?

In the spec it says:
"Sensors Accelerometer, light sensor, gyroscope, magnetic-sensor"
So have they worked out how to make the compass work with all the magnets holding it shut or should it have read:
"Sensors Accelerometer, light sensor, gyroscope, magnetic-sensor(disabled)"
No compass on the Gemini is a shame because it means astronomy apps don't work so well, it'd be nice if they would work on the Cosmo.

Sod this, I'll email them and ask, I'll get back if I get a reply.

I think I have seen it mentioned somewhere else (or it might be what my interpretation of the Googlified text was...): It supports "standard" charge on both sides and "Pump Express" only on the left side??

I don't read/speak Japanese at all, but that is how I understood/interpreted it... And if that is the case, I'm OK with that.

Ditto Varti, I would have loved to be there too. On the plus side though, it looks beautiful, and we're very nearly there. Soon we won't be discussing videos and articles, we'll be discussing our new toys.

Indeed. However, if production, as scheduled, actually begun THIS, wouldn't we have heard, at least SOMETHING, about it by now?

I'm not going to act like I'm surprised that Planet Computers says nothing. Still, in the very midst of what could be the most exciting week of the Cosmo project thus far, isn't the complete radio silence a bit too quiet for comfort, even by their standards? Or am I missing just something?
