MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS, Barcelona: Planet Computers, in conjunction with mobile software developer Auxens, announces the availability of OXI for the Gemini PDA. OXI is an Android-based virtual operating system that enables users to run both mobile and virtual applications in a multi-window desktop environment.
By connecting the Gemini PDA to an external display, OXI provides a fluid desktop user experience: reducing mouse latency and enabling easier access to CPU resources, as well as providing the ability to launch business applications such as Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Office.
OXI enables users to edit documents and complete multiple tasks simultaneously in different windows, while still being able to use the Gemini’s large 5.99-inch screen – including the ability to take calls and send/receive messages.
The Gemini PDA links to an external secondary HD display and runs OXI via Gemini's USB-C to HDMI accessory. Windows can be resized full screen with the touch of a button for maximum productivity and to streamline workflows. Push notifications appear on the right hand side of the desktop display, so users never miss the latest notifications.
Dr Janko Mrsic-Flogel, CEO of Planet Computers, comments: “The smartphone is essential to the way people work. Gemini was designed to offer something unique to the mobile handset market: a productivity tool that allows users to work and play from a single device with an integrated keyboard. Our collaboration with Auxens takes this to a whole new level – creating a multi-window desktop experience from a PDA.”
Laurent Alaguero, President of Auxens, added: “By connecting your Gemini PDA to a monitor or dock station, OXI allows you to use it as your main computer – meaning your entire digital environment now fits in your pocket.”
OXI for the Gemini PDA will be available when purchasing official HDMI cable from the Planet store.
