Ockel Computers, Microsoft and Intel put Windows 10 in your pocket

Exactly one year after showing a first concept of the Ockel Sirius A, the world’s most versatile Windows 10 mini PC, Ockel Computers will display a full working prototype of its latest innovation. The Ockel Sirius A is the third mini PC of the Dutch hardware start-up, that raised 1.2 million dollars on Indiegogo for the development of smartphone-sized Windows 10 computers.

The Ockel Sirius A is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, but is just as powerful as a desktop PC. This unique ultra small machine is equipped with a full Windows 10 Home or Pro license, powerful hardware components, a 6-inch touchscreen and battery. The one of a kind design enables an incredible amount of connection ports: two USB 3.0 ports, DisplayPort, HDMI, USB Type-C, Micro SD and LAN.

Ockel signed partnerships with Microsoft and Intel to bring the project to life and expects to ship the revolutionary mini PC to Indiegogo backers this autumn.

This unique ultra small machine is equipped with a full Windows 10 Home or Pro version, powerful hardware components, a 6-inch touchscreen and battery. The Ockel Sirius A combines the connectivity and functionality you want and need when you are using a personal computer with the portability you expect from today’s technology.

Ockel Computers created a device with a unique form factor and new functionality. The one of a kind design enables an incredible amount of connection ports: 2 X USB 3.0, DisplayPort, HDMI, USB Type-C and LAN. The Ockel Sirius A is the third device developed by the Dutch hardware start-up, that raised almost 1.000.000 dollars in crowdfunding since the launch of the brand in November 2015.

Ockel signed partnerships with Indiegogo, Intel and Microsoft to bring the project to life.

The Ockel lll is a unique little machine that combines the portability you want and expect from today’s technology with the connectivity and functionality you need when you are using a personal computer. By taking a different approach to design and technology Ockel developed a groundbreaking, smartphone sized device that forms the missing link between a real Windows 10 desktop experience and a mobile device.

Ockel integrated an extensive range of connection options, including 2 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, DisplayPort and a LAN port. A 6-inch full HD touchscreen and built-in battery enable unplugged and on-the-go use. The Ockel lll runs all x86 compatible Windows programs. The majority of Android, iOS and Windows Mobile devices run on ARM compatible architectures, but this architecture cannot run the same software as laptops or desktop PC’s. And in case you have a mobile device that does run on the x86 compatible architecture, you often have to hand in on performance or the options to connect peripherals. The Ockel lll however doesn’t compromise on the architecure used to make your software run and it doesn’t sacrifice connectivity.

The Dutch hardware brand signed an exclusive partnership agreement with Indiegogo to crowdfund the new concept, that is also officially supported by Microsoft. At least 250.000 dollars are required to bring the project to life. It is the second time Ockel and Indiegogo work together, after the successful launch of the Ockel Sirius B Pocket PC last year. More than 450.000 dollars were raised during that campaign. Ockel is hoping for a multitude of the success of the Sirius B.
