Thoughts on UMPC – Origami

It looks like the hype machine got carried away again. The announcements at the Intel Developer Forum and Cebit did not give us the iPod killer that people expected. The information from Microsoft’s Ultra-Mobile PC site provides a little bit of information. Microsoft’s channel 9 has a great interview with Otto Berkes, the architect behind the Ultra-Mobile PC.

Engadget has a number of pictures and articles on the UMPC.

The UMPC will be playing catchup to OQO 01+ mini-tablet PC and the Nokia 770 Linux-based tablet. Battery life will be an issue for all of them.
