    Wah! Sweet :D

  2. Beware says:

    Wonderful. Hopefully we’ll get more battery life now. Increase the resolution and drop the price and it would be an ideal UMPC. ^_^

    With “real” touchscreen and SSD etc etc :)

  4. jkkmobile says:

    yep, touch, ssd and 3g with atom.. i’d liky!

  5. kyuss says:

    wow – this is cool!

    i sense a new record price :-D

  6. Fixup says:

    Too late, now we have M528 and Aigo, more pocketable (12 oz vs. 16 oz) and far less money.

    And the U2010 is THE “one PC for all”.

    Either case, OQO has no more standing.

    I have for 2 years a P1510 … i don’t feel as usable as OQO e2 SSD (Lifebook is too big)

  7. Marc says:

    Form factor of the OQO e2 SSD Vista with numeric keypad/Functions is the best of all UMPC…
    it would be the best ever if crystalmark ch could jump from 24000 to 35000 and battery life with extended could jump from 5 hours wifi or hsdpa to 7/8 hours)…

    I dont’t mind to use a pen on the screen .. better and more precise than fingers…

    Marc Reply:

    The OQO form factor is great.

    But I’m not convinced by the pen. Touch is fine when a device is this small.

    Cheers
    Marc (A different one!)

    chippy, do you know which atom is in it? is the 1.33ghz version too much to hope for?

  9. Mike Cane says:

    Will this mean a dramatic price drop or anything along those lines?

  10. jkkmobile says:

    Dramatical price Drop??

    Hey it’s OQO… price might go higher as itshould have more performance and battery life with Atom ;)

    Atom does not equal less price.

    That is from OQO CEO it says (above link/post)

  12. archiwiz says:

    Hopefully the price would be low enough to make it more accessible.

  13. TareX says:

    What it needed was soft touch…

  14. Stuart Guthrie says:

    While I’ll be honest and say that I was hoping for the VIA Nano and am a little disappointed, I have full faith in Dennis’ decision and know that he knows what is best for OQOs future.

    Stu :-)
