• Planet Computers Gemini PDA: January 2018 Update

    By Josh Bethell , January 14, 2018 - Leave a comment

    Planet Computers have had a very successful showing at CES in Las Vegas this month.

    Coverage of the Gemini PDA has been positive with major outlets such as the BBCCNET and The Verge promoting videos and hands-on with a finished production unit.

    Off the back of this, Planet Computer’s Indiegogo crowdfunding page has seen a surge of orders. This has meant that all of the initial manufacturing run through January has now been allocated to crowdfunding backers.

    The downside for us at Clove is that we were expecting some of this stock for retail! Planet has now told us that a second manufacturing run is scheduled and it will be from this we will have retail stock.

    This is due to be with us in April; a firmer date will be provided once the manufacturing window is locked in with the factory.

    As soon as we have a firm date & a final retail price (RRP) we will open orders on the Clove website.  Until then, we’ll keep you updated with developments.

    Plus you can expect YouTube and blog coverage from us once our crowdfunded unit arrives (hopefully in a few weeks)
