About UMPCPortal

Thanks for visiting UMPCPortal.  Thanks for your donations too. Every little helps to keep this site independent and focused on bringing quality posts and expanding the product database.


Carrypad.com was developed from a blog started in Feb 2006, itself the result of a personal quest to find a device that would complement a ‘three device strategy’ – The mobile phone, a desktop PC and the missing component – a ‘Carrypad’. Co-incidentally, Microsoft had been having much the same though and with the introduction of Origami in March the segment was born and Carrypad became very popular as a key reporter and researcher. As products where introduced to the market, details where added to a product database which is now the best ultra mobile PC product reference that exists.

In Jan 2007 Carrypad bought and merged the community site ‘Origamiportal’ under a new banner ‘UMPCPortal.com’. Carrypad is now a registered company and UMPCPortal is the customer facing information portal.
