UMPC Version Idea: PINEPALM PRO

First of all, this product doesn't actually exist.......... however if there is demand for it it may just be able to become real!

I am making this post to ask the question of "Would you buy it?", however since not everyone is a fan of UMPC units, I must ask the additional question of "Do you like pocketable UMPCs with a clamshell form factor and keyboard?"

This image is a mock-up intended to convey what is intended to be represented, voltage listed is likely off, mock up was done in a hurry and without much homework being done so please keep that in mind!


Currently there are several products on the market that resemble this device, some have yet to be released, also there have been quite a few more in the past. The list below is mixed and totally not in any order. The Gemini PDA and Cosmo Communicator stick out for having a low profile mechanical keyboard, some of the items on this list are a little dated. I owned an Openpandora at one time, but it broke on me and I was never able top get it repaired, I used it mainly for mobile word-processing and it did the job very well and at one time or another have looked into getting the other units on this list for that same purpose. If you go through this list and check what these badboys are selling for (Some of them you can't even find being sold used anymore), you'd find that this theoretical "PINEPALM" unit selling for the same $199 price tag as the 14" Pinebook Pro Linux Laptop would actually allow it to compete with the below items as a budget option for a full qwerty clamshell all in one UMPC.

GPD Pocket
GPD Pocket 2
Dragonbox Pyra
GPD Micro PC
Viliv N5
Gemini PDA
Cosmo Communicator
UMID Mbook
Fujitsu Lifebook U1010
Open Pandora
Sharp IS01
KS-PRO
