After the ugly monstrosity that was the Cosmo Communicator, Planet Computers is hawking a new sequel, the Astro Slide 5G.

It looks to have mostly the same keyboard as the Cosmo (backlight included) but also has hinges that allow the display to be external when the keyboard is not being used.

These hinges look to be much better quality than the cheap plastic of the Gemini.

Oh, that's nice. I liked both the Cosmo, the Gemini and I'm loving this. But I still prefer the Gemini for some reason.

I’m with you HPC:Fan. The Gemini is more HPC-ish with the traditional clamshell format, and I love it. I just have Linux running on mine and it is a pretty good J720 killer (although I still keep my J720 for a distraction-free writing time, and for compulsive reasons as well...)

This new device seems quite nice and I like it. It is a good compromise if you want to keep a ”J720” and a regular phone on the same device
