I would have backed that project already if it was more like a Nokia E7 or Nokia N950.
Basically the screen facing the other way so that the device can be used as a smartphone when closed.
Then again with such a large battery it would not be practical I guess. That would be a different device altogether. I've noticed a few other people making the same observation. Another solution would the dual screen design on the Nokia E95 and other communicators. Right now the Gemini is neither a smartphone nor a laptop, it truly is a PDA.
As it is, I'm still hesitating...
