A company called GPD is preparing to launch a mass financing project that will examine the answer to this question
Somewhere in the previous decade, When the atoms' atoms work Intel There was a new, unique and refreshing look in the mobile market, the UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC) category tried to gain momentum with a system offering Windows Full of tiny packaging, on the days when computers are used Mobile "Averages" were more similar to the terrific gaming models we know today.
The idea makes sense, but poor hardware has not been able to provide a reasonable experience in any way, combined with my life battery Tiny and problematic, killed the idea when it was still in its infancy, for netbook computers that offered larger dimensions but also popular prices and life battery Much more reasonable.
Since then, the name UMPC has disappeared almost completely from the surface, and even when we came across these tiny PC computers, they were mostly in the format of טאבלט Or some hybrid product - but it turns out that there are those who have not forgotten or given up, and believe that today we already have the necessary and appropriate technology for a festive comeback.
The company is an unusual manufacturer from Hong Kong called GPD, and the product it dreams of creating is the pocket, which will be מחשב נייד Amitai that will activate the 10 windows system or the popular Linux distribution Ubuntu In 16.04 version - with only 7 screen and QWERTY compatible miniature keyboard.
The Pocket will offer an 7-inch touch-supporting IPS panel and an 1,920 × 1,200 pixel resolution with Gorilla Glass 3 cladding, plus the x7-Z8700 square core Cherry Trail generation chip Intel (Which will be surprisingly cool considering the dimensions of the product), 3GB LPDDR4, volume storage The built-in XMMXX eMMC 5.1 and 128mAh batteries can be quite impressive if they are based on typical voltage typical of the 7,000 Volt tablet market (for a total capacity of approximately 7.4Wh) or slightly less impressive in a slightly more stable mode based on typical voltage of Smartphone World, 52 Volts (for a total capacity of about 3.7 watts). However, the battery should provide 26 fairly impressive working hours for the device.
The new-era UMPC will give up the familiar touchpad for an analog navigation button similar to the one that has become the trademark of the ThinkPad family of Lenovo (With two additional buttons below that replace the mouse), and will display a set of connections that includes USB One 3.0 Type-A "Classic", USB One updated 3.0 Type-C that is also chargeable, micro HDMI Connects to external display devices and an integrated 3.5 audio connector.
The Pocket PC will have built-in Wi-Fi connectivity with support for the latest 802.11ac standard, built-in Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity, speakers Both stereo and metallic aluminum alloy casing, with a thickness of 18.5 millimeters and a minimum weight of 480 grams only - which is a very nice bonus for a product that will be offered at a starting price of 400 dollars.
GPD are confident in their ability to create a new, but not totally sober UMPC system, it seems - judging by the decision to crack down on the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign before Pocket production begins, probably to test the extent to which it manages to create Surfers. The fundraiser will begin this Wednesday, the 15 in February, with the goal of creating another surprising success story - much like the company's unique Win device (which included an even smaller 5.5-inch screen) earning about 720,000 dollars on the same platform Early last year. The cost of the fundraising venture will be as much as 400 dollars, while the final official price will already be significantly expensive - about 600 dollars, which may be a little too much for the consideration, even if it is very unique.
So would you be willing to consider buying a device like the Pocket PC, or perhaps from your point of view there is no need and logic in the computer Mobile So small? Let us know what you think about the reactions.
