OQO Shuts Up Shop.

What a shame. One of the companies at the core of the ultra mobile PC movement and with a history that goes back beyond my first blogs about the topic has gone under. The confirmation came through GottaBeMobile and all we’re left with is the thought about what could have been with the OQO 2+ Atom-based ultra mobile PC that we first spotted on stage at Intel’s IDF Sept 2008.

The economic slowdown, netbooks, the increasing capabilities of smartphones and the introduction of some lower-cost ultra mobile computing options were obviously too much to bear for a company that kept a tight focus at the top end of the ultra mobile PC market with their innovative designs. From the high quality keyboard including sticky keys with indicators to pulsing LED power cables, external battery chargers and desktop docks, they always put the extra effort in to make the whole product suite as complete as possible.

OQO is trying to seal a deal for the technology and engineering teams so we keep our fingers crossed that they managed to find a new, exciting venture for them. We also hope they manage to find a way to repair and return owners broken OQO devices that still haven’t been recieved back by the owners yet.
