OQO – The true ‘Pocket PC’

Written By: Gary on January 9, 2004 One Comment

How’s this: “The OQO computer has all the functionality of a ultraportable notebook computer, with a 1GHz processor, a 20GB hard drive, 256MB of RAM, color transflective display (for easy indoor and outdoor viewing), 802.11b wireless, a removable lithium-polymer battery, and FireWire™ and USB 1.1 ports. For input and navigation it includes thumb keyboard with TrackStik™ and mouse buttons as well as digital pen and thumbwheel.” It even has more than that! All in a handheld computer which fits in your pocket (I can’t find size specs on the web site).

CES and he showed it on TV a minute ago. It comes with a funky connector that has usb, firewire, svga and all the other ports you need (you can use this as a docking connector) It has a USB port built in so you can take a full size keyboard with you! I’ve been asking for this on palms for years!

    Yes it was pocket size but it was actually too small to be useful. A full Windows OS computer requires a touch type keyboard which they opted not to use and instead used thumb keys. The result no big sales even after many years of marketing and now in 2009 they are out of business. It was all due to the lack of a keyboard not the price as I would easily spent the money but not for thumb keys.
