GPD Pocket Pro or Pocket 2
« on: October 07, 2017, 03:56:43 am »
Hi. Here we can mention our suggestions about the demand of another version of GPD Pocket.


Firstly I would like to say that this model that I am going to describe bellow is not stealing sales from the current Pocket as is in an upgraded version with characteristics that are more appealing for business use.


The version that I would like.

1. Better CPU than Intel  atom

2. Better positioning of Wifi antenna for faster speeds and better reception.

3. 4G LTE modem with global band support like band 3/7/20/28 and voice option (my umpc viliv n5 had a modem that could do also voice calls in windows 7 http://www.umpcportal.com/2010/07/viliv-n5-umpc-full-review/)

4. 256GB SSD for faster speeds

5. Micro sd card slot

6. Better keyboard design move the caps lock, space as a single key

7. If it can fit a larger display in that form factor

8. Full usb type-c speed

9. Camera for video call

10. Better battery

11. Backlit keyboard



Easier version to make a "plus" model that can be out is a couple of months.

Same cpu, ram


1. 4G LTE modem with global bands 3/7/20/28 etc

2.  256gb storage capacity or Micro USB slot

3. Larger battery

4. Move wifi antenna position for better Wi-Fi reception (macbook air is aluminium and has very good antenna).

5. Backlit keyboard

GPD you should announce one fast. We will pay the premium.

It is uncertain with what they will choose to go. I think It will get larger to avoid thermals.

I think my only bet is to buy the current Pocket and just wait to see what will happen with cpus.

If it can not be used with current powerbanks pocket 2 would loose its super probability as it is a full computer that demands cellphone power requirements.

They could use a Huawei modem as viliv did many years ago to make phone calls too. They should also make the keyboard like viliv n5 with  smaller keys  and proper layout. Also they can add an optical trackpoint and mouse keys like viliv when used as a thump computer.


 

Also they should manage to install a webcam.

It will become extra large if it has upgradable parts. Sockets are huge.

Macbook Air for example has soldered ram to save space.

Can?t see gpd doing a follow up for a while plain and simple because they are making huge sales from the first one. its going to be around for a few years yet so don?t look for a successor any time soon.

I'm pretty sure it's going to be released next year. Didn't GPD had said that Win 1's production will come to end this spring due Atom's end of lifecycle?
