Origami Revealed: The Ultra-Mobile PC

Here it is: the Origami Project from Microsoft has been unveiled, and it's pretty consistent with the rumors. It's similar to a Tablet PC except with a smaller, handheld form factor that's too big to be a pocket computer but a bit more compact and portable than a tablet. And it runs the full install of Windows XP, eventually to include Vista.

The MS site is light on details, but it gives two  models pictured on the page with the promise of more to come.  Powered by the Celeron M, we may one day see Linux running on these devices. They have decent hard drives, around 60 gigs, and USB connectivity as well as WiFi.

I have to admit that if the pricing is good, I may be tempted in spite of my preference for Mac OS X.
