Cosmo Communicator or “smartphone” crowdfunded for $549

Technology is truly advancing and the world keeps seeing all sorts of devices. In truth, we really don’tĀ know the new that will captivate the market. Sometimes, the unexpected does take the market by surprise. Now, we have a new communicator (as the company will love to call it) or do I say smartphone? or a palmtop? The Cosmo communicator is currently on Crowdfunding atĀ Indiegogo and the price is $549. Generally, this is a phone, laptop and whatever, all in one.

The Cosmo communicator is aĀ small mobile PDAĀ  device with a dual screen, a backlight mechanical keyboard, and a flip cover.Ā Specifically, the Cosmo Communicator is more like a palmtop. It has a flip cover andĀ is equipped with a 5.99-inch 2160 x 1080 screen. On the outside of this device, there is a lid and a 2-inch AMOLED display which helps you toĀ take calls and see notifications without opening the device.

In other words, if you want to use Cosmo’s main screen, you have to open it and work with it as a laptop. Only that you can hold it and work with it as you go. It is super light just like a smartphone and it is also pocketable. It has a dimension of 17.14 x 7.93 x 1.6 cm and weighs about 320 grams. TheĀ Cosmo communicator runs Android 9 (Pie) and also supports Linux OS, such as Sailfish OS and Debian, with a multi-boot option. It works with a SIM card so you can make and receive calls/text with it.

    It is important to state that Planet Computers successfully launched a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) earlier this year called the Gemini, which was a simpler device in that it did not have a front screen and the keys, though mechanically wonderful, were not backlit. Almost 7000 supporters have been using the Gemini since its launch, and Planet Computers has been very responsive to us as backers. The Gemini runs stock Android but can also double-boot with Linux or Sailfish. I am a user of the original PDA, the wonderful Psion, and I am happy to say that the Gemini keyboard is very similar to that of the Psion (it was created by the same designer). The Gemini is a wonderful productivity piece.

    Planet Computers asked us Gemini backers what we wanted in a second generation device, and the top winners were a second screen and a backlit keyboard. Both are incorporated in the new Cosmo Communicator. For credibility, I attach a photo showing my beloved old Psion next to my Gemini 4G + WiFi device:
