The idea of handheld PCS is set to take off in the near future thanks to the partnership between Microsoft and ARM. But, there’s already some competition from a Shenzen-based company squeezing Windows 10 into a small form factor and the Indiegogo campaign it’s launched to fund the project.

That company is GPD and its project is called GPD Pocket, a handheld Windows 10 PC that includes support for x86 applications. As of this writing, the project received $2,056,982 in funding from 5021 backers with only a month left for its Indiegogo campaign.

The GPD Pocket comes in a magnesium chassis with dimensions measured at 180 x 106 x 18.5mm and a weight of just 1.06 pounds. That makes the GPD Pocket remarkably lighter than most other 2-in-1 devices already out in the market today.

The GPD Pocket sports a 1920×1200 7-inch IPS Display with Corning Gorilla 3 protection and a 16:10 aspect ratio. The small screen, however, might not be of great help particularly for your typing demands. Nonetheless, it’s a small yet powerful machine that meets your typing needs thanks to its ability to connect to a larger display via a micro HDMI port.

Inside, a quad-core x7-Z8750 Intel Atom SoC clocked at 1.6GHz powers the handheld PC. The device also includes an 8GB RAM and offers 128GB of internal storage. On the connectivity side, GPD Pocket features a 802.11a/ac/b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, Micro HDMI, 2.4/5GHz dual band, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB Type-A 3.0.

In terms of design, the GPD Pocket doesn’t disappoint. It ships with a neat keyboard, though the absence of a track pad might cause inconvenience to some users. The GPD Pocket also comes with an active cooling, which means the device won’t throttle under extreme load.

The GPD Pocket comes in two options for its operating system: Windows 10 or Ubuntu. Complete details of the device are available at GPD’s campaign page.
