The technology is evolving over time. The computers as a
whole have evolved in recent years. The personal
computers were large desktops and then the tech industry
invented laptop, and the later smartphones. The consumer
electronics in 2018 are smaller and more compact shaped.
Dual-screen laptops might be the next trend in consumer PCs,
but there are some OEMs interested in Pocket PCs, including
Intel. The chipmaker showed off the dual-screen
Tiger Rapids at Computex 2018, and it appears that Intel
also developed a pocket PC with full Windows 10 operating
Intel is working on a Pocket PC since 2016, and it runs full
Windows 10 operating system that you wouldn’t normally expect
to fit in a smartphone-sized device. While it seems innovative,
it’s not the first pocket-sized device to boot Windows 10,
pocketable devices are available in the market for a while
This is just a prototype version and Intel won’t bring it to
the market. Intel Pocket PC looks like an innovative product
that many of us would like to have for productivity on the go.
The prototype could fit in your pocket and it looks like a
smartphone or a phablet.
The Pocket PC is powered by Intel Core Kaby Lake Y, which
is fanless and it powers the current generation notebooks. The
processor is underclocked in smartphone mode, and the
clock speed would increase when the Pocket PC is connected to a
display with a dock, the tech is similar to Microsoft’s
Continuum for Windows 10 Mobile.
It’s a mini PC that runs a full version of Windows 10 operating
system, the device is featuring hardware and technologies
that are pretty difficult to fit into such a small case.
As noted above, Intel also unveiled the Tiger
Rapids, a prototype dual-screen notebook with Windows 10.
The Intel Tiger Rapids is an actual working device, despite
being a prototype.
Intel is of course not planning to manufacture the Pocket PC,
and the question now is whether OEMs will bite into this Intel
idea. The bigger question, however, is whether consumers will
actually buy these products. What do you think? Let us know
