Successfully backed Indiegogo campaign product — GPD Pocket 7.0-inch laptop — appears to have been listed on the online retailer site Geekbuying. Thus you can now pre-order this somewhat innovative device for just $495.99. Since you might interested in getting one yourself, let’s go through some of its main selling points!
The GPD Pocket is a “full on” laptop in an incredibly small form factor, indeed it’s even smaller than the obsolete netbooks that are now a far memory. Specs wise, the GPD Pocket is considered an UMPC (Ultra-mobile PC) and has such it comes with quite good hardware.
We go from the Intel Atom x7-Z8750 processor clocked at 1.6Ghz (turbo boosted to 2.56Ghz) to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of eMMc internal storage. The display on the Pocket is 7-inch big and sports Full HD resolution, it is also touch screen, which is a good thing considering there’s not an actual touchpad below the keyboard, but only a Thinkpad-style pointing stick instead.
As far as battery goes, the GPD Pocket comes with a big 7000mAh capacity battery which on paper should result in about 12 hours of autonomy, definitely more than what you’d expect on a similarly priced full-sized laptop.
You can currently pre-order the GPD Pocket over at Geekbuying for $495.99, where you’ll also find the full specs sheet of the device.
