Apple's first tablet, the Newton from Apple co-founder Steve Jobs said in a speech  that the company's strategy is really simple. What we want to do is we want to put an incredibly great computer in a book that you can carry around with you and learn how to use in 20 minutes Apple also developed a prototype PowerBook Duo based tablet, the PenLitebut decided not to sell it in order to avoid hurting MessagePad sales.
GPD plans to launch a crowdfunding campaign for the Pocket 2 on Indiegogo sometime in the next week or two, giving customers around the world a chance to pre-order the device. But the company has already launched a Chinese crowdfunding campaign at JD.
The goal is to ship the Pocket 2 to backers by the end of September. It ships with Windows 10 Home bit software. The tiny computer is powered by a 4.
In order to make more space for the keyboard, GPD opted for a new design that omits the pointing stick that was placed above the space bar in the original GPD Pocket.
But when potential customers expressed disappointment with the lack of any pointing tools, the company added an optical touch sensor to the strip of buttons above the keyboard, along with left and right-click keys on the other side of the touch bar, allowing you to move a cursor and click without using the touchscreen or an external mouse.
That said, while the new GPD Pocket 2 is a bit sleeker looking than its predecessor, the main upgrade is the processor. When the original Pocket hit the market, it basically had no competition. There was nothing else like it available at the time.
Now GPD has a competitor: That device adds a few features that the Pocket lacks, including a backlit keyboard, a degree hinge that lets you transform the computer into a tablet, and an active digitizer with support for pressure-sensitive pen input.
The Pocket 2 has none of those features. But the One Mix Yoga has one major failing: So at this point you can choose between a faster device that will ship later this year, or a cheaper, slower device that can be used in more ways.
Meanwhile, it looks like a newer, faster Intel Core m3 chip is on the way.
But until I get a chance to run some tests, offer impressions, and tell you how it compares to other tiny computers, the next best thing may be a hands-on article from Gizmodo Japan.The new Steam Link app for Android streams PC games to your mobile device.

The upcoming GPD Pocket 2 is a handheld computer with a 7 inch full HD display, a QWERTY keyboard, and a laptop-style design. As the name suggests, it’s a second-generation device and the new.
True Launch Bar is the superior replacement for standard Quick Launch. I actually bought this little dude because I wanted to play around with Star Trek launchers and themes. A toy, in other words. And, I have been without a 7" tablet for about a year, and there was an empty space in my pile of tablets.
