OESF Portables Forum _ Gemini PDA - General Discussion _ List of online stores selling Geminis and accessories

Hi,

I found this on Amazon UK which fits the Gemini with a bit of finagling: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B071FGN8Y5/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I got the XL Dual but the magnetic button doesn't reach (closing the press stud flap around the flap does) but the XXL Dual may work properly.

Would it be an idea to include SD cards here (or in a separate list)?

I can confirm that the https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/memory-storage/memory-cards/microsdxc-evo-select-memory-card-w--adapter-256gb--2017-model--mb-me256ga-am/ works fine.

But I'll be tempted to get a bigger one as soon as one's confirmed…  (I have a lot of music!)

I can confirm that the PNY Elite-X microSD 256GB, P-SDU256U3100EX-GE works - I'm using it as external storage instead of the debacle that Android "internal" storage does to you.

For the uninitiated, choosing "internal" for storage when it asks to setup the SD Card means it formats then encrypts the card with a key that makes it useless on any other device. You can control where your apps go, but honestly its a pain in the ass and I regretted using a smaller card in that mode.

Save yourself the trouble, use "External".

Clove have a good reputation for after-sales support, and ship internationally.

I remember Clove back when they were a Psion dealer… I haven't had any recent dealings with them, but back in the day, ISTR they had a very good reputation.

Not sure if they have them in their hands yet.

If you don't mind waiting a little while they are still available on the https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/gemini-pda-android-linux-keyboard-mobile-device--2/x/17330882#/ for $599 (~£450) & $499 (~£380) for 4G/WiFi respectively which is substantially cheaper.

I always buy all my electronic devices on Swappa.com. There's been a seller who's consistently selling new and used Geminis on there.

I may be selling mine soon and will throw it on that site. Used to sell on eBay but the fees are so much less over at Swappa.

Can confirm that Miyavix Overlay Plus screen protector for Gemini PDA, available on Amazon US (and perhaps elsewhere), fits perfectly.

Almost too perfectly--it's difficult to install. Only Japanese instructions, but I installed right to left, with Scotch tape at hand to pick up dust, etc as I went along. At one point, had to pull it off and clean the whole thing with Scotch tape.

Protector appears to be anti-glare, so it's not glossy like the Gemini shipping protector. But it's responsive and is cut correctly.

Hello,

I can recommend you this active stylus, works flawlessly with the Gemini. Price performance is great in my opinion. I bought mine at Amazon. Surely you will find it somewhere else, for those who don`t like Amazon.

I also have the screenprotector from upscreen (spy shield clear). All in all I'm very happy with it, could have been 1mm longer then it would be perfect. Was very skeptical at first, because I read here that it does not fit. For me it works, however, it must be mentioned that there is no recess for the light sensor.

Check out BoxWave company in USA.

Used them for many years for screen protectors, stylus, etc on various portable mobile computing devices.

I found a good stylus in a bookstore (Bruna, Netherlands) It works better then i had anticipated.
You can find it at https://nl.hama.com/182509/hama-stylus-easy-voor-tablet-pc-s-en-smartphones-zwart?bySearch=stylus
and it costs (at Bruna: Eur 4,95)

btw, different colors are available.

So afther reading all about cases and such i decided to make my own.
Bought a second hand soft leather lammycoat for the leather. (eur 4,00)
Then on a rainy sunday a few weeks back i made this:


Inside the soft leather case is a lining of 5mm thick felt. There is a V-shape cut out so i can grab the Gem with two fingers easely. Its also contains two creditcard slots.
One for my bank pass and one for my drivers licence.
The stylus normaly is inside the cord transit.
It cost me about 3 hours to build.

I just hang it around my shoulder.
