PiPO KB2 – A Folding Keyboard That’s Also Windows 10 PC!
Gareth Andrews / 2 years ago
People love small computers, the ability to sit and use your smartphone or a tablet to play games or write an essay while you wait for the bus or your order at a restaurant. So what about if you got a computer you could fold into your pocket? that’s the idea behind the PiPO KB2, one of a new series of PC’s hidden with keyboards.
The PiPO keyboards will be released in two batches, starting with the KB1’s which will be released soon. If you’re interested the KB1 will feature an Intel Atom x5-Z8300 (also known as a Cherry Trail) processor and either 32GB or 64GB of memory to back up the 4GB Ram. If you didn’t want to spend so much, you could grab a KB1 with an Intel Atom Z3736F or Z3735 processor (from the Bay Trail series) with 2GB of RAM. With 2 USB ports, an ethernet port, microSD slot, a VGA connector and an HDMI port the inbuilt speakers, battery and touchpad are rounded off with Wi-FI and a battery.
If you want something a little more pocketable, you could wait until September and get the KB2 featuring the same storage options of 2/4GB of RAM, 32/64GB of storage and even the same Cherry Trail processor as the KB1 model. Going with the upgrade, the KB2 will feature a USB 3.0port, a micro USB port, and Bluetooth. For the added bonus of being able to fold and pocket the keyboard PC, you lose the touchpad, something which I’m sure people will compensate with their own travel mice.
With both devices running Windows 10, are you interested in being able to carry around a pocket PC to plug into your friend’s TV or do you think that you’ll stick with your laptop and tablets for now?
