    That + a better iteration of Windows Mobile = one dead powerful phone.

    nice biz card tim...

    About the product itself... I find it really impressive, though I doubt it will run Vista. Not that I would ^^.

    I'm guessing maybe, quite possibly, there could be a chance that they're for....USB devices? :D

    Wrong :p



    There was a vid of it playing WoW, Starcraft, Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows XP. I think the quoted screen res was 1600 x 1000 or something

    http://www.oqo.com/products/model02/specifications.html

    I saw a review of it a couple weeks back, and it used the same motherboard/cpu that is in the Bit-Tech article

    I am a Qtek S200 Owner (the black PDA) and I must say it is a nice piece of technology, and looks pretty slick IRL :)

    Wow! That's very small and would open up a lot more opportunities for PCs. Would be great to mod too - imagine the possibilities...

    It's got a 600MHz VIA processor on it, and an IGP (not sure on specs). We were playing Quake 3 on the OQO UMPC and it ran surprisingly well, although that's based on a slightly bigger form factor.

    I think there is 256MB RAM on board, two USB2.0 ports and you can build a fully functional x86 machine, including an LCD, the size of a cigarette packet. Obviously, that's a little bit small for using as a PC, but a 6-8" LCD is what VIA is looking towards.

    I played Quake 3 for like, 20 minutes on the UMPC. Lots of (expensive) retro fun.

    If someone puts a phone in it then we can watch the iPhone run in fear :clap: I hate conformity :grr: If I had enough cash I would buy one of those PCs, but as it is I cant find the $900.00 I need for a laptop :grr: now if only someone could use that paper thin LCD technolgy then a bigger screen and lighter weight. Also it needs a card reader, like SD or Memory Stick Pro Duo. :rock:
