Nice review/discussion/presentation...

Thanks!

And a short part 3 (where you can see the link for a "special perk" that gets you the Gemini PDA (WiFi + 4G) for 499 USD...):

That's a really interesting perk for any new backer, thanks for the heads up, I'll open a new thread for this so that more people will be aware of it.

Agreed.

Myopic, wanna-be Millennial reviewer (needing relevancy from them) (my characterizations), totally missed the reason d'etre of the Gemini PDA.

An explanatory reply / rebuttal ought to be Tweeted about "the point" and target markets of the Gemini PDA to him - @ANDYBOXALL - by backers AND Planet execs.

Ifanafi

P.S. IMHO, his deleted FB page and no-link email button suggests his reviews have been pushed back against by others responding to his missed-the-point reviews.

A not so great review from Digital Trends, completely missing what’s the point and the consumer target of the Gemini:

Apparently it was only for MWC, and is supposedly gone again now
