Planet Computers first product, Gemini, was launched 25 years after Martin Riddiford, co-founder of therefore, designed the first clamshell PDA and 20 years after therefore designed the Psion Series 5. Martin had played with the idea of breathing new life into the PDA several times over the years, but it needed Planet Computer and Dr Janko Mrsic-Flogul’s enthusiasm for such a venture to convince him it was time to do it for real. Based in London, Planet Computers took up the mantle with one goal: to bring back the mobile keyboard.
