Astro Slide 5G - First look

Finally received the Astro Slide 5G Transformer phone I had backed on Indiegogo in March of 2020. 

This is Planet Computer's third offering in the series - starting with the Gemini (reviews here, here, here, here, here, here, and here) , followed by the Cosmo Communicator (review), and now the Astro Slide 5G Transformer (all three shown left to right below):

Here's a shot showing the Astro Slide Transformer with keyboard open, along with some other keyboard PDAs:
