but it's not EPOC :(
Which is understandable. But anyway, I don't see the point in a device like that. Sure, HWK. But other than that?
Can't be used as a phone since there's no secondary screen like on communicators. It can but I for sure wouldn't want that.
To small to be laptop replacement. With or without linux.
It runs android so one already can do all that on the phone.

Make it a slider and then it is something.

Can somebody enlighten me what's the point of this design?
One low power co-proccessor for standby-stuff i could understand, but what's this good for:
2x Cortex A72 @2.5GHz
4x Cortex A53 @2.0GHz
4x Cortex A53 @1.55GHz

If i run a webserver on my pocket-computer or do heterogenous supercomputing?

Or is it for power management?

Only if you're a self-facilitating media node.

I actually like the design. A 4G version would satisfy my communication needs when I don't want a phone - which has increased a lot lately. Just not a fan of the OS. Not fully.
