Ultra Mobile PC

Origami – the ultra mobile pc.

Microsoft is officially announcing its origami project today at CeBIT , there was a lot of hype/questions on what it is as the origami created lots of interest and expectation and very good advertisement from Microsoft without actually explaining on what it is.

“The "Origami" project is really our first step toward achieving a big vision. We believe that UMPCs will eventually become as indispensable and ubiquitous as mobile phones are today,’ said Bill Mitchell, Corporate Vice President Windows Mobile Platforms Division.

The price is expected to be around 599$ to 999$. Microsoft website explains

What Is the Ultra-Mobile PC?

The Ultra-Mobile PC is a new kind of computer. It combines the power of Windows XP with mobile-ready technologies that make it easy to access and use your software on the go. With small, lightweight, carry-everywhere hardware designs, you can connect and communicate, accomplish any task anywhere and at any time, and be entertained and informed wherever life takes you.

Looks like its a mixture of LapTop + Mobile + PalmTop + Blackberry , all features combined into one. I am not clear on which market segment would Microsoft target for this, who would be really using this or useful to ???

Drop a comment on what you think.
