I really want to back the GEMINI, looks so cool...

By the way, I found something some of us here might like.
Windows 98 running on a Raspberry Pi Watch...

To me, the Pyra and GPD are no match for the Gemini. The reasons are the Keyboard that looks a lot more comfortably than the GPD and (for sure) the Pyra, No fan, the replaceable battery and mostly the lack of game controls. I'm looking for a device that I can use for business and pleasure, and a gaming device doesn't really look as professional as the Gemini. Furthermore the screensize isn't really as much as a dealbreaker for me. 5.6" is bigger than the screensize of my mobile, and thats big enough for me. I also like the fact that it's really pocketable.

My only concern is that it's on Indiegogo. I don't know what the risks are. What happens if it just remains a concept and it will never be sold? Will I get a refund or did I lose my money in that case? Any experience?

Edit: The win 98 watch is the coolest thing I have seen for a long time. Not very useful, but cool as hell!

I wonder if the watch still has the shutdown problems of Win98. Dick Tracy would be totally cool with this watch.

* Know this won't change your opinion, but for accuracy sake, the Pyra has a large capacity user-replaceable battery.

* As for Indiego, risks depends upon what funding approach the developers select. There's Fixed and Flexible type funding methods.

- Fixed Funding means there's a specific funding goal that must be met.

- Flexible Funding means developer keeps all the money raised.

HTH,

I backed a project on Indiegogo once, but the project owner changed its goal dramatically, so I decided to get a refund. It went very smoothly. I think it was flexible funding.
