In late 90s, the Psion personal organiser was seen as the original personal digital assistant and the precursor to the smartphones we use today. Now, 20 years later, it’s making a comeback. Named Gemini, the device is from a new startup, but most notably designed by Martin Riddiford, the man behind the original keyboard on the Psion Series 5.
The company named Planet Computers is behind the Gemini. It’s a tiny Android device with an 18:9 ultrawide 1080p screen and a compact full physical keyboard. The device runs on a 10-core MediaTek Helio X27 processor and has 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage + microSD, a 4,220mAh battery, and two USB-C ports.
Gemini is 15.1mm thick and weighs 308g. There are two models of the device available: Wi-Fi-only and LTE. It runs on stock Android with a customized dock and for those wanting to take things to another level, there’s also a dual boot option to run Linux.
The Gemini sells for $399 and is said to be shipping soon.
