Gemini PDA

The Gemini is a 4G and WLAN device with a full physical keyboard. 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.

As announced in the blog post on June 26, 2018 (by Vesa-Matti Hartikainen), the development of Sailfish X for Gemini PDA continues, following three phases. The one we are interested in is the second one, shown below:

Up next: Sailfish X Beta for Gemini

The start phase in making Sailfish X a reality for the Gemini PDA is making it available as a beta release from shop.jolla.com. The target is to start the beta release out in September.  The beta release will support software updates – even to the final version when available and will have access to the Jolla Store, but it does not include any third-party component, i.e Android support won’t be included.

In practice, starting from September Sailfish X will be available for those in possession of a Gemini Wifi + 4G or just wifi.

A comment from the editorial staff

We have not yet got to test – and then buy a Gemini PDA – but we are really very curious to try this device a bit ‘amphibious, which has characteristics between a phablet, a tablet and a mini laptop with a physical keyboard.
We will try to get one during this fall, and at that point we can review it and recommend it or not.

The following information is objective and collected at the source from the manufacturer site, and quoted accordingly.
