$149 “mini PC” delayed, to become 6 incher

We wrote in May this year about a new pocketable Windows 10 PC  which raised more than $1.5 million with 30 days on Indiegogo.

The “mini PC” was similar to other devices of the type, offering a 5 inch 720P touchscreen, 8 GB of RAM, expandable 128 GB storage, a large variety of ports including Ethernet, full-sized USB and USB-C, HDMI and WIFI, and 6 hours of battery life, with the biggest weakness being the processor which powers it, that being the outdated 2016 Intel Atom X7-Z8750.

Now the team has reportedly delayed the device to make some much-needed upgrades.  The device will now ship with an Intel m3 processor and will offer up to 16 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. The 5-inch screen will now become 6 inches, to allow for more efficient cooling of the more powerful processor.

We assume the low price will also see something of a hit after the upgrades, though it is still being offered for only $189. The bundle will reportedly however still include a folding keyboard.

The team is currently targeting mid-November for delivery.  Keep up to date with the project at Indiegogo here.
