The Cosmo Communicator is the next clamshell PDA from Planet Computers that can run Android Pie and dual boot Linux
This brings back fond memories of my Nokia Communicator (still have it) and my Psion (don't have it). Is there still a market for these... or would the 4,220mAh battery sell it? Nice thing with this is it can even dual boot into another OS and it seems they are pushing its openness as well.
Without getting into any of the cool software wizardries on board the Cosmo Communicator, its two displays are something to marvel at. The outside display of this device is a 2-inch AMOLED display, which provides information at a glance. Its primary function is to take phone calls and see your notifications, but it can also show the time and date as well.
The internal display is what you’ll be looking at most of the time though, and is your standard run of the mill display. It’s a 5.99-inch, 2160×1080 touchscreen LCD panel.
Planet Computers are pushing the openness of the Cosmo Communicator as a selling point, as you can install Sailfish OS and Debian for ARM right out of the box. You can dual-boot another operating system alongside Android Pie if needed as well if you’re really worried about not getting updates.
The company has said that the Cosmo Communicator will launch in the US costing $799 from June 2019. It’ll be purchasable online, and you can pre-order it from their IndieGoGo now.
