Following a wildly successful Indiegogo campaign, the GPD Pocket is an Intel Atom-based PC that you can, as its name suggests, fit in your pocket.

The GPD Pocket offers a glimpse at the future of Windows 10, as more and more of us seek ultra mobile computing solutions. But this isn't Windows 10 on ARM; this is a full x86 PC.

Running either Ubuntu or Windows 10, the GPD Pocket has impressive specs for its size, which clocks in at an admirable 180 x 106 x 18.5 mm. The GPD Pocket is perhaps most easily compared to Microsoft's Surface 3, complete with a magnesium chassis. However, there are some key differences. The GPD Pocket is physically smaller, slightly lighter, and claims better battery life. It also beats the Surface 3's display PPI, but sheds the Surface's 2-in-1 configuration.

GPD claims that its Pocket device beats the Surface 3 on performance, in part, due to the fact it uses active cooling. The Surface 3, like all Surface devices, tend to throttle under load to prevent overheating.

The GPD Pocket, given its size, utilizes a TrackPoint pointing stick as opposed to a full trackpad, but there are plenty of ports for connecting USB mice, and Bluetooth connectivity if you want to stay fully wireless.

GPD is targeting a June 2017 launch for the GPD Pocket, and you can purchase one through their Indiegogo campaign right now for $399, which seems pretty reasonable.

With the Surface Mini reportedly canceled, this looks to be the next best thing in the interim. Hopefully, we'll have a full review up of the GPD Pocket in the future.
