And I am curious/worried (mostly the latter) about the BIOS.
I suspect some proprietary binary blob, but couldn't find/search properly on that subject.

There is no desktop-style BIOS there, as it's an ARM device. The closest to it is little kernel, which they are going to release. But there are lots of other blobs just as in regular Android phone, so I guess it should be the least of worries.

The fact that it is built towards being an Android device is the elephant in the matchbox when it comes to worries

Talked to the Planet PDA guys.
The Gemini PDA is cheaper on Indigogo, than on the official site, and they will first deliver all indigogo perks and afterwards the shop purchases.

The second batch should cover all indigogo perks, which are not yet delivered.

Purchased on indigogo.

And for people, who want develop SailfishOS on the Gemini PDA - there "might" be special offer.

I can't post details here, but all folks, who want develop or port SF on the Gemini PDA, might contact me on Telegram @explit.
And i will look, what i can do.
Of course, anything is without warranty and only a "good will" act of Planet Comp. Inc.

PLANET COMPUTERS ANNOUNCES GEMINI PDA TO RUN SAILFISH OS

PRESS RELEASE

Gemini PDA to run Sailfish OS mobile operating system – developed by Jolla

See Gemini in action at CommunicAsia 2018 – Marina Bay Sands, Level 5, Stand 5L4-10

Sailfish for Gemini Community Edition available to download now

CommunicAsia, 26th June 2018: Planet Computers today announces the Gemini PDA will feature Sailfish OS mobile operating system, developed by Finnish mobile company Jolla.

The long-standing partnership between the two companies means Sailfish 3 – the third generation of the open-source mobile operating system, based on the Linux kernel – is to be made available on the Gemini PDA.

The Gemini PDA is a quad-boot mobile device, capable of booting into Android OS as well as a number of Linux distributions – including Sailfish OS.

Sailfish X, the downloadable and official version of the OS, will be available in late 2018 and will feature a suite of advanced functions including: over-the-air (OTA) updates; Jolla Store access; end-user support; and crucially for Gemini users, full support for landscape user-interface (UI), encrypted user data and communications, Android app support and a refreshed user interface, with improvements like redesigned email.

In the meantime, Sailfish for Gemini Community Edition – a community supported version based on Sailfish OS 2.0 – is free and available to download now: http://support.planetcom.co.uk/index.php/SailfishOS

Gemini PDA is being showcased at CommunicAsia 2018 – Marina Bay Sands, Level 5, Stand 5L4-10.

Dr Janko Mrsic-Flogel, CEO of Planet Computers comments: “This is the next stage in our partnership with Jolla and it is an important step in our mission to open up the Gemini PDA to the Sailfish community. Users will be able to benefit from the technical performance provided by the quad-boot features of the Gemini PDA and explore the power of Sailfish OS for themselves.”

Sami Pienimäki, CEO of Jolla, says: “We are excited that Gemini PDA will join the Sailfish X family starting now with the community edition, and followed by the official version later this year. Gemini PDA with its full QWERTY keyboard is a very lucrative device for many Sailfish fans and it also brings back memories of the iconic Nokia N900 device. Gemini PDA with Sailfish OS is a very powerful combination.”

Gemini PDA has raised more than $2.3 million in investment to date. For the latest updates, click here: http://ow.ly/qaFD30g3Ihv.
