The GPD Pocket is expected to support either Windows 10 or Ubuntu 16.04 Linux.


GPD is just showing off a few rendered images and mockup prototypes at this point, so we’ll have to wait a while to see a final, working product. But the company expects the system’s features to include:

7 inch IPS touchscreen display with Gorilla Glass 3
Intel Atom x7-Z8700 Cherry Trail processor
4GB of RAM
128GB of storage
7,000 mAh battery
The system is said to be slightly larger than the GPD Win, and it has an aluminium chassis. Pictures show a USB Type-C port, a full-sized USB port, an HDMI port, and a headset jack.

The GPD Pocket look like a nice portable laptop for people who need to use Windows, and Ubuntu on the same portable laptop.

128GB is not a lot of storage space when you install the many programs like Firefox, Chrome, LibreOffice, Media players, games, media files, documents, photos, etc on a PC's internal drive. Hopefully, there would be a version with 500GB or more storage.
If it can support windows ten then you can load any Linux OS onto it, with the right tweaking.

If you don't mind having slower performance, using a Linux emulator/virtual machine software like VirtualBox or VMWare can be useful.

Some people just plan to temporarily use Linux to take a Linux command line, or Linux related class course for collage to learn about topics like Linux Desktop environments like GNOME, KDE, and LXDE, and how to use Linux command lines to do stuff like update Linux, and Linux software from the command line.

Some Linux operating systems like Debian, Puppy Linux, and Tiny Core Linux still run very quickly in virtual machine software.
