The Cosmo Communicator is a follow up to the Gemini PDA, a smart mobile device with a full keyboard designed for productivity on the move, which aims to improve on that device with numerous new features.

The 4G device, which is being shown off at CES,  now features a back-lit keyboard, 24-megapixel camera and a secondary screen, allowing you to take phone calls and view notifications without opening the device.

The device is powered by an 8-Core Mediatek P70 processor, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory (extendable via a microSD card), and has a uniquely designed chassis that now includes two support feet for the hinge when the device is open.

The Cosmo also features a large battery for up to two days of use, dedicated voice assist controls, 6-inch internal colour screen, dual 4G SIM capability (physical and eSIM), stereo speakers, two USB-C ports for charging and connecting peripherals, and an advanced ARM Mali G72 graphics processor.

Its features include;

  • Full backlit physical keyboard
  • Primary 6” colour touchscreen
  • Secondary 2” external colour touchscreen
  • Android 9 (Pie) OS
  • 24MP external camera
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • NFC capability
  • Wi-Fi and 4G connectivity

Linus Tech Tips have managed to get a hands-on with a prototype of the device, and seem suitably impressed. See it in action in their video below:

The device has already passed its crown-funding goals and aims to deliver in mid-2019, but you can still support the venture and grab a Cosmo for $250 off by pledging $549. Crowd-funding are of course not stores, and any company, even one with previous successful projects, may fail to deliver.
