GPD Pocket 2

Shenzhen-based GPD recently announced the successor to its GPD Pocket launched last year. The GPD Pocket 2 comes with upgraded hardware and some design tweaks.

GPD has been making unique Windows 10 handheld consoles and the Chinese company recently unveiled the GPD Pocket 2, successor to the original Pocket PC. Although it offers a similar shape to the previous model, the hardware is somewhat better and it has been reworked to offer more productivity.

“We’re back with a new generation of our beloved GPD Pocket. As a pocket-sized laptop, the GPD Pocket 2 meets end-to-end premium mobile computing needs of business professionals,” the company said.
