I don’t know about most people, but I’ve wanted something in this form factor for a long, long time. I’ve been drooling over the OQO site for ages and their latest addition, the OQO model 01+; however I was always put off by the price tag (US$2k range). The Origami PC is a bit larger than the OQO device (it seems to be on par with the Toshiba Libretto), the promise of something under US$1k makes it a decent trade-off for me. As anyone who knows me can attest, I’m addicted to my connected devices. My i-mate JasJar has been useful, but I’m anxious for a small device running Windows XP. I want one. Now.
Microsoft Corp. finally took the wraps off its mysterious Project Origami on Thursday, unveiling a computer that’s about the size of a large paperback book but runs a full version of the Windows XP operating system.
