Linux now joins Android on Planet’s little Cosmo Communicator computer-phone


Fans of the PDA-inspired Cosmo Communicator can now run Linux on the handheld computer/smartphone from London-based company Planet Computers. Planet Computers announced general availability of the Cosmo Communicator in November after its crowdfunding campaign last year for the second iteration of a handheld computer inspired by the Psion Series 5 PDA from the 1990s. The Cosmo Communicator was promoted as being able to run Linux and Android but until now it didn’t have dual-OS functionality, leaving Android as the default OS and no option to switch to Linux.

The company has now announced that the Cosmo Communicator can run Debian Linux with KDE, which offers a full graphical interface.
