Planet Computers will be exhibiting at International CES in Las Vegas, 9-12th January, as part of the official UK delegation. Planet will showcase and launch Gemini, a dual boot Android/Linux PDA with a full QWERTY keyboard. Gemini recently received a CES 2018 Innovation Award in the Wireless Handsets and Accessories category.

Connected to the internet by 4G and Wi-Fi, Gemini resembles popular PDA products from the 1990s. It is a clamshell designed mobile device with a physical keyboard and a large (5.99 inch) multi-touch colour display. Gemini enables users to type emails, blogs and social media posts easily on the go.

A fully functioning mobile device, Gemini allows users to make calls, send texts, surf the web, watch videos and movies, browse and download apps from Google Play store, all whilst typing on a physical QWERTY keyboard. The 4220mAh battery enables users to remain connected all day without having to carry a tablet or laptop.

Gemini is powered by the Android operating system but is also a Linux dual boot device. It boasts 64GB internal memory with expansion via a microSD card, yet weighs less than 320 grams.

Planet Computers will exhibit at CES in Eureka Park as part of the Great Britain and Northern Ireland Pavilion. Gemini will be showcased on stand number 51916.

Dr Janko Mrsic-Flogel, CEO of Planet Computers, comments: “Having been named a CES 2018 Innovation Award Honoree, it is appropriate that we launch Gemini at CES. It is particularly relevant to be part of the UK delegation at the event as Planet Computers is a UK company and Gemini was conceived and designed in the UK.”

Gemini was one of the most popular Indiegogo projects of 2017. For updates on progress please click here: http://ow.ly/qaFD30g3Ihv

Notes to editors:

Planet Computers launched the Gemini PDA crowdfunding project on the Indiegogo platform in March 2017, and is close to trebling its original target to support the development programme. Planet Computers is on target to deliver the first full production products to supporters of the project late this year and the project remains ‘InDemand’ on Indiegogo for pre-orders of the crowdfunded version of the product.
The Gemini is a 4G and Wi-Fi device with a full physical keyboard and runs on the Android and Linux platforms (dual boot). With a 5.99” screen, 5 megapixel camera and stereo speakers it provides a communications, media consumption and social media device for the 21st Century. Gemini will come in a variety of different keyboard language layouts.
