Sailfish is a good crutch when the device has an inferior user interface. But the Gemini has no need for such crutches, having been designed like a real computer. Why compromise? Put a real Linux on it, with a proper desktop UI. Oh wait, they did!

Though of course you'd be using a Wasp T12 Speechtool, not a Gemini PDA, if you wanted to be totally Mexico.
I could not find any info about that device, except that it is some kind of television fictional device? (not even from Mexico...)

It's from a TV show from about 10 years ago, which incidentally managed to relatively accurately predict the future, which seems to be a recurring theme in Charlie Brooker productions.

Chris Morris too.

I remember watching The Day Today (a fake news programme) the first time around, and thinking how hilarious the ludicrous excess of the CGI intro / ident bits was.

Watching it today for the first time you might well miss the joke, because that's exactly what 24 hour TV news looks like...

Gemini PDA is mainly an Android smartphone + qwerty mechanical keyboard. Linux is an option with dual boot.
So Sailfish OS would be an alternative to Android on Gemini.
And the Linux distribution which will be used by Gemini PDA is not yet decided.

The keyboard has no F1-F12 keys and lacks a few symbol keys too. I doubt it could be really used as an UMPC with "real" Linux inside rather than usual Android.
