    Nice ! Any azerty (French) keyboard?
    Price?
    when?

    But the best would be for me a tablet with a good pen technology, probably 8 inch, but I could accept 7", and the same technical characteristics

    Is the wifi 5 ghz ? if not, make it, to eliminate interference with bluetooth

    How's the typing experience, and trackpoint? In my opinion, while the concept is great, such devices are seriously undermined by lack of LTE.

    oh how cute...when closed it literally looks like a mini-mini Macbook. I'm almost tempted to order one just for the cuteness. And to throw OSX on there somehow, put an apple sticker, and just troll the macheads at my local starbucks.

    I love the ports.....USB 3.1, HDMI, USB-C, and a headphone jack.....all in that tiny 7 inch frame......again....Why is Microsoft and so many other manufactures of larger devices so damn stingy on giving us ports?

    The indiegogo campaign closed on Monday, and they'll start shipping it to the backers next week. In probably a month or so you'll be able to buy it from gearbest, etc. Price will be $469 on those sites, I believe.

    I went back and forth due to lack of LTE. I will be able to carry this thing with me everywhere, and the way my life is right now I'm pretty much always around an extremely high speed wireless connection. So in my use case, the lack of LTE is not a deal breaker, and I could always Hotspot my smartphone in a pinch. I was bummed there was no microSD card support though, that just sucks.

    I'm prepared to have a terrible time with the trackpoint (never used them even when I had a ThinkPad laptop for almost 5 years, but I think a combination of the touchscreen and the app TouchMousePointer will work out ok. I'm going to see how handy a full Windows PC that I can actually carry around everywhere I go is.

    More of an experiment than anything, but this little guy is more powerful than the Surface 3. It's pretty much what netbooks should have been years ago.

    Since the hardware is close to Surface 3, I'm going to try and dual boot Android-x86 or RemixOS. Might be pretty nice. There are times I wished my smartphone had a kickstand (come of Surface Phone), so I think it the laptop form factor will come in handy.

    Imagine if they had this with a 360 hinge and pen support. That would solve the issue of the pointer (could just use the pen), and that would be a notetaker that was 100x more powerful usage-wise compared to the Galaxy Notes, in my opinion.
