I found this project called POCKIT, which has a modular "Pi bricks" to upgrade and customize the handheld.

Beta waitlist info at the end of the video.

What a well-made video. Great voice-over. Given their size, the keyboard and screen aren't anything more than proof of concept, but if he did make a HPC clamshell, he'd have a lot of room to play. Hard to believe that stick-n-play works without complaint, but he didn't seem to crash the machine even once.

I hope he shows a handheld model like you said. That will be cool.

Something like Nokia 9300i or Gemini / Cosmo Communicator

That's very cool. I had a similar idea a few years ago, but my electronics knowledge isn't good enough to even attempt it. 100% kudos to them.

Must have been an effort finding all those white components to make their Apple-esque video

Remember those smartphones from Google that had similar concept? Those were neat.
I really like the antenna on the left, and a sort of resemblance to white MacBooks from early 00’s.

I think the keyboard is actually for Blackberry, if I’m not mistaken.
