The Planet Computers Cosmo Communicator is a smartphone that could easily be mistaken for a tiny laptop thanks to its clamshell-style design and physical keyboard designed for touch typing.
Launched through an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in 2018, the phone is now available for purchase from Planet Computers and comes with a choice of Android or Debian Linux operating systems (or a dual-boot option), and there’s also an experimental build of Sailfish OS for the device.
