Finally got myself a #GeminiPDA. It is my first step towards getting rid of a smartphone.
The device a bit is sloppy in some aspects and lacking basic documentation but is overall pretty comfy to use. Especially when you type English.. (Russian keyboard has more letters than English one and this one is designed to fit English alphas, and if you need Cyrillic symbols you got to use)
For example, it was very unobvious, that in order to add Russian keyboard to be used with Gemini's physical keyboard one has to also add Russian language to android - otherwise it types in English. Some functional keys combinations work in a very unpredictable manner, as well: there is no way to switch keyboard layout via android key combination, however I found out 5 minutes ago that pressing Ctrl-Fn-AnyNumberReally switches layout.. but disables some Fn combinations entirely. It is okay but strange for a device designed around its keyboard.
Anyway I will get used to it. Meanwhile the whole idea is to use android as rare as possible, and this device makes it hard to just casually google something, for example. Works for me!
Next steps will be buying a camera and an ebook reader
@lowpolybrain but you tried to install debian on it, no?
