Three, a small form factor computer, with a eight inch full hd display, thats designed for it professionals or others looking for sort of a little computer. In that size, a couple of accessories that i will explain momentarily, but i just wanted to do a quick, unboxing and first look in this video, mostly because the crowdfunding campaign for this is going live, uh pretty soon and im not gon na have time to do A full review by then so lets do a first look uh. So again, here weve got the gpd pocket three, its a mini laptop computer, a little bit larger than the previous generation pocket devices, but a little bit more versatile as well so uh. First thing: youll notice here is its a little large to actually fit in your pocket. I would say, unless you have very large pockets, but it is a very small computer for a laptop pc. Weve got full size, hdmi and a usb type c port here. Usb type a but notice that there are two little screws here, holding that in place: thats actually a modular slot, so we can actually swap it out for something else well get into that later. Um, an h or ethernet support, two full size, usb ports and a headset jack and speakers on either side uh. I call that usb c, but it actually depends on the model that you get on this version. Thats gon na be a thunderbolt port on some models.

It might not be weve got a large sort of vent down here in the bottom screws. Holding everything together well see if we can open it up at some point in the future and when we lift the lid youll see here its got a kind of unusual design where weve got not quite a full size keyboard, but a keyboard. That should be large enough for touch typing. I think and above it is the power button, a touch pad and left and right click and center buttons here for navigation, its also a convertible with a screen that flips 180 degrees lets uh see if we can see that a little bit better. So you can lift it open, flip the screen, 180 degrees and then fold it down and hold it like a tablet, so thats, basically whats in the box. Weve also got a usb type c power, adapter, a pen which is an optional accessory, its not necessarily going to be included unless you pay extra for it, because digital pen should support pressure, sensitive input and it comes with a battery, got a couple of buttons here. Pressure sensitive tip, there seems pretty nice, a lanyard that you can use to attach. I think to this section right around here: yeah right there, and so you can sort of hold it um its a little on the hefty side for a handheld device. Let me see if i can get a weight on it: real, quick, its about two pounds and, as i mentioned theres a modular section that allows you to actually swap out that usb type, a port for other accessories and what i was supplied with here are two Options, one is a serial port, so you can unscrew this slap in the serial port and then use this for rs 232 connections, not something that most casual users are necessarily going to need.

But it might be something that you could use in industrial or i.t settings or commercial applications. If you want to use this, as i guess, a lot of cash registers and other sorts of uh machines use serial ports still and then the other one which im having a difficult time opening, because there is a little bit of tape on it. Its really interesting – and i dont know that i have a cable that will work with it, so i might need to pick one up to test it, but this is a kvm switch, so you can actually connect this to another device uh using two cables. So you can use hdmi input as opposed to the hdmi output, so you plug in hdmi output here and you can connect an external display. If you use the hdmi input, you can connect an external computer or other device plug it in here and use this as a screen. And then you can use the usb type c port here for touch and keyboard or you know other forms of input, and so the idea is that i can take this with me say to a server room: uh use that kvm switch module in here and plug It into a server or any sort of headless computer, and now i have access to that remote machine right here on the device. Another thing that sets this apart from most of gpds previous generation devices is that there is a webcam here.

I dont necessarily have real high hopes for a webcam, but it is something that you dont see on a lot of their devices. So uh new features include that convertible tablet style design, uh inclusion of a webcam. The touchpad is something weve only seen previously on the gpd micro pc up until now. This is a little bit larger than the micro pc and while it might be a little harder to hold in one hand and thumb type, because its kind of hard to reach across it is large enough for touch typing, i would say – and the screen is gon Na be a little bit larger and more comfortable for a lot of purposes. So its still a pretty portable machine lets see if it has any power here and if i can turn it on theres. Also, a fingerprint reader built into the power button and weve got a backlit keyboard as well in terms of specifications and pricing uh. This is gon na sell for well theres two versions: theres, a version thats gon na have an intel, uh, pentium, silver, n6000, jasper lake processor, uh, eight gigs of ram and uh 512 gigabytes of storage, and that version is priced at about 650 and up and thats, Not including these optional uh, additional uh ports for 999 and up there is a version with uh, an intel core, i7 1195 g7 processor, im, cortana and im here to help a little sign in here 16 gigabytes of ram and a terabyte of storage and thats.

Actually, the version that gpd sent me for the purposes of this review, the average is going to sell for about 9.99 and up and theyre both going to be available for pre order, starting on november 5th beijing time, uh at 10 a.m or thats, 10 p.m. November. 4Th east coast time 2021. uh for about 30 off. I believe those prices is what i was told thats, obviously going to be subject to change. I dont know if its limited quantities but thats the crowdfunding idea here. So just give you a sort of quick look here: navigation might take a little getting used to using the built in system here lets see if i can connect to the internet real, quick and yeah. Now the keyboard, the layout seems pretty good. Weve got some sort of half size keys down here on the bottom uh, some half height, page up and page down keys. But overall i kind of like the layout here theres a little bit of space between all the keys. I think it should make typing a relatively comfortable experience. Uh there is room for all the number and function keys and then theres. Some special function keys up here above that for volume and so forth, might take a little getting used to the fact that the brackets and the dash and plus and equal signs are up here. Uh escape and print screen are up there in some previous generation devices. From companies like gpd and onenetbook weve seen some of these keys sort of doubled up with maybe the caps attached to the a, for instance.

This tab key, is kind of small but ill, be ill, be curious to see what i can find out about battery life. General perform general purpose performance typing uh generally using this as a computer as somebody whos, not an id administrator, i would love to be able to check this out um, but its, not necessarily the make or break feature for me, but i do really like this size Of computer, i think the 8 inch screen gives you a little bit more room for that nearly full size or closer to full size keyboard for comfortable typing than you get on. Some of those 7 inch models and thats sort of a trade off that you get with this larger screen, but overall, its an interesting device that im looking forward to to learning more about all right so somewhat. Unsurprisingly, um, when i tried to log into windows, it caused a little bit of a problem because im recording this video using my phone and my phone is also my multi factor authentication for my microsoft account so anyway, uh here, i am logged into windows. Lets take a quick look around while were here uh. This is not gon na be really in depth. This is literally just a first look video, but you can see that the screen the touch screen seems to work out of the box. It was actually set to 200 scaling. The one thing that i did just now is change it to 150.

Just so, i can fit more stuff on the screen, because, with a 1920 by 1200, pixel display at 200 scaling its a little bit uh difficult to sort of make anything out, lets go ahead and open up a web browser here seems pretty zippy and responsive lets. Try a typing test: this is after having not taken any time at all to get used to the keyboard. Remember, where is the quotation all right? 67 words a minute one typo adjusted to 66 thats a little on the low side. For me, i can usually get more in the 80 to 100 range, but first out of the box try here with the keyboard, you saw i sort of had to hunt for a couple of keys once you get used to them. It should be a little bit easier, uh. Speaking of that keyboard looks like weve got one level of backlight control on or off um weve got access to screen, brightness volume up and down, and a couple of other things like that, and one other thing that i wanted to take. A quick look at here is the stylus, so lets do a quick, um open up microsoft paint thats the opposite of what i wanted to do. Okay, my handwritings bad enough as it is normally but see. Okay, so neither of those function has an eraser. Do they not out of the box um? What about palm rejection, not seeing any problems there? Maybe a little bit of resistance there, but overall seems to get the job done.

Um not seeing any automatic screen rotation here might be a setting that needs to be adjusted. Talent mode, you all right, so one problem with changing the display scaling might be okay, so it looks like i mean i can manually flip, but it doesnt seem to want to do it automatically. So that is definitely something im going to need to look into the odd put out a convertible tablet and not have a sensor that adjusts that, but you know you could always just do it, the old fashioned manually, if you had to i suppose and thats what It would look like as a handheld device and then you could sort of take your notes or do whatever you need to do. Um, not perfect, but it works, and then it has a convertible. You can use it as just a display flip the screen around use. It this way hold it in your hands, hold it in one hand or put it down on a table, so that is again just a first look, the out of the box experience of the gpd pocket three uh im not ready to pass judgment on it. I do like the size and feel of it its an interesting device, its uh, unlike really anything else that gpd has put out before its like a cross between their p2 max and their micro pc in terms of size, specs and features uh its similar. In some ways to competitor one netbooks a1 series, which also has a convertible tablet style design also has ports that are really geared towards i.

t administrators, but has a bigger screen than the handheld gpd micro pc, so its um definitely a niche device. One thing to keep in mind is you can already see that this hinge is a little bit less sturdy than the typical hinges that would have uh. You know one on each side and let you flip the screen over all the way backwards. This one does not go all the way around 360 degrees, it sort of stops here at just over 180. I would say, and im not entirely sure what purpose that serves other than that it makes these ports on the back accessible. So weve got this uh ethernet jack weve got this modular port that we can change out. I suppose it also allows for one of the vents to be here so weve got air intake on the bottom and air out here um, so that is the the gpd pocket. Three more details coming soon stay tuned for little feudings uh more in depth, review uh! You can check out links in the description of this video for the crowdfunding campaign and more information about this little computer, um yeah. So far, im im intrigued.
