Want a Windows 10 PC in your pocket? GPD's tiny laptop will also run Ubuntu
If you’re not a fan of tablets and soft or tethered keyboards, a forthcoming seven-inch PC could be the answer.
The maker of the GPD WIN, a 5.5-inch Windows 10 handheld game console released last year, is planning to launch a tablet-sized laptop, dubbed ‘Pocket’, which will run Windows or Ubuntu.


Shenzhen-based GPD says the forthcoming laptop will live up to its name, being small enough to stuff into its owner’s pocket, QWERTY keyboard and all.Where the GPD WIN was a game console that could work as a PC, the Pocket is aimed at people who want a really tiny, fully-fledged laptop.

The device will feature a QWERTY keyboard layout, including a trackpoint cursor controller that’s wedged between the spacebar and left-click and right-click buttons.
The company touted the laptop on its user forum last week with an image of the device and a description that reveals it will feature a seven-inch touchscreen with Gorilla Glass 3, an aluminum body, a 7,000mAh battery, 4GB RAM, and 128GB storage.

According to Ton-chi-ki, the Pocket’s screen will have a 1,920 x 1,080-pixel resolution and the device will support Windows 10 or Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Typing on a keyboard that’s crammed into a seven-inch device could prove difficult, but possibly no worse than using an attached keyboard on a tablet.
As with the GPD Win handheld gaming console, GPD is planning to launch the Pocket through an Indiegogo campaign that’s scheduled to go live in February, according to Ton-chi-ki.
