Gloture, a Japanese e-commerce store specializing in electronic gadgets, has just released a new product that should strike the nostalgic chord of computer enthusiasts.
The NanoPC is a hybrid device which, in its shape, looks as much like a PDA, the forerunner of smartphones, as a (big) tablet. That’s good, it’s all that at the same time, and even a little more. The NanoPC is a mini PC equipped with a 5.5 inch screen in a compact 142 x 17.76 x 91.2 mm body. It therefore takes up less space than an iPhone 13, although it is thicker than Apple’s smartphone.
This microcomputer is very versatile, despite its minimal size. It actually works on Windows 11 Pro. It is therefore companies and users demanding the quality of its product that Gloture wishes to seduce with this product.

With its Celeron J4125 4-core processor clocked at 2.70 GHz, the NanoPC is clearly not a thunderbolt, and gamers wishing to create a transportable and powerful configuration will quickly pass their way. The Intel CPU is indeed from 2020, and its performance is incomparable with more recent references such as the Intel Core i9-14900K, for example. The rest of the file is a bit off the mark. It features 8GB of LPDDR4 RAM, with 128GB eMMC storage. The 5.5-inch screen for a definition of 1280 x 720 pixels is multi-touch. Note that this tablet/PC/PDA hybrid is not not equipped with a webcam.
What it does not offer in terms of power, the NanoPC more than makes up for it with its wide variety of ports : 2 Mini HDMI 2.0 sockets, 4 USB 3.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, microSD card slot, 3.5 mm audio jack, etc. Let’s add a USB Type-C port which also serves as a power supply, and which will allow Windows 11 to be displayed on three screens simultaneously, a configuration which could affect system performance, however. In a nomadic configuration, the NanoPC will be able to operate away from an electrical outlet, with its battery with a capacity of 2,500 mAh. It is sold on Gloture’s online store at a price of around €540.
