Tiny computers are becoming more and more popular thanks to the advantages they offer: portability, satisfying computing power, and attractive price tags. The best mini-PCs can even compete with mid-range desktop PCs and judging by the current trends, it’s not too far-fetched to say that mini-PCs will become very popular soon.

An interesting tiny desktop computer that caught our attention is GOLE1, a device so small you can slip it into your pocket. GOLE1 is powered by an Intel Atom x5-Z8300 Cherry Trail processor with 2GB or 4GB of RAM. Its most interesting feature is the 5-inch touchscreen it incorporates. As such, GOLE1 could easily be mistaken for a phone thanks to is groundbreaking design.

This tiny computer runs both Windows 10 and Android 5.1 thanks to the Switch to Android app that lets you reboot into Google’s OS. In terms of connectivity, GOLE1 is equipped with four USB ports and has a battery life of up to 2 hours. Other features include:

  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi
  • Ethernet
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • HDMI output
  • 1 USB 3.0 port and 3 USB 2.0 ports
  • micro USB port
  • microSD card slot
  • 3.5mm headset jack
  • 2,600 mAh battery.

For the time being, GOLE1 is a working prototype, and shipping for Indiegogo backers should start at the beginning of July if everything goes according to plan.

You can use GOLE1 for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or e-mails at the office, or you can connect it to a projector to deliver a presentation.  You can connect this tiny PC to big screen TV by HDMI and stream YouTube or watch your favorite movies using the best movies and TV apps.

As for the price tag, prices start at $79 for the 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage version, or $99 for the 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage model. These are early bird deals; afterwards, prices go up by $20 for the 2GB model and $30 for the high-specced version.
