Another UMPC type device, this one is morr interesting and ARM powered. It can run Windows 10 or Android N on a Snapdragon 835.

That's the worse of both worlds imo

With 24.6 x 15 cm this is too big for me, has an usb 3.0 port though.

24.6 x 15 cm is indeed on a biggish side. AND is has a USB 3 port, another minus

I might still consider it if I see it in the shop and have a chance to play with it and see if I like ir. Buying a cat in a bag, no thanks.

Also no word about the startup before their campaign,
no prototype, only a single rendering video,
no concrete timeline.

All red flags there are for a crowdfunding campaign.

Genuinely curious... how is USB-C a negative?

C is a negative across the board: http://blog.fosketts.net/2016/10/29/...thunderbolt-3/

However, I don't see the problem with 3, it's just a backwards compatible, faster version of the previous USBs.

Thanks for the correction, I obviously meant C, not 3. Silly typo.

However this device promises USB 3, not C. That is of course a positive. I got totally muddled up, sorry folks.

Look at the picture of the ports and the specs both say USB Type C type connector (see attached)

The description of problems by nthn though; I was fully unaware.

There is a USB 3.0 on the right. I don't mind USB C as long as it is not the only port available.
