Microsoft Website has been updated with new info on the Origami Project.
Origami is not a single device but an architecture (UMPC) that brands like Asus and Samsung will use to build compliant devices. The Ultra-Mobile PC (UMPC) uses the Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 OS and besides the standard features implied in the architecture the devices will have other features (like camaras) depending on the device maker.
The standard device specification:
- Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 OS
- Approximately 7â€ diagonal display (or smaller)
- Minimum 800 x 480 resolution
- Approximately 2 pounds
- Integrated touch panel
- WiFi- and Bluetooth-enabled
The Origami devices will feature full Windows software support, multimedia and connectivity capabilities. I couldn’t find no info on the storage capabilities of the devices, not even on the Intel UMPC site.
Microsoft’s is giving another run on their Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, still it might be better than the Windows Mobile OS that’s being used on smartphones… Anyway, the project is looking good, now let’s wait for the prices.
