I just saw the Microsoft Origami video that isn’t supposed to be out (looks like a production company was so proud of it, that it posted it on its website as what they could do for you…obviously not knowing it wasn’t public yet). I am very impressed. Me want now!
Few interesting ideas:
- It was hand-held tablet, but about 1/2 the size of my tablet PC (approx 10"x7" maybe?)
- They showed some form of Halo on it, so probably Vista based.
- Showed some MCE stuff…I like the size for a portable video/audio player.
- Implied phone connectivity (copying phone pictures to it).
- Implied WiFi support (showed WiFi Spot sign while e-mailing someone)
- Implied support for GPS (showed someone navigating back-country with it).
- Showed it hooked to an interesting folding leather case that had a keyboard on the bottom…probably no keyboard built-in.
Hey Microsoft…will consult for gadgets.
Where do I pre-order?
