""" When the $1,000 Ultra-Personal Computer hits stores this fall or winter,
it will operate as a stand-alone wireless handheld computer, akin to a
Palm, the company said. Or it can be used as a "modular PC" that connects
to a full-size keyboard, mouse and monitor to replace a desktop PC."""

""""This is a full Windows XP (news - web sites) computer that fits in
your pocket," said Colin Hunter, executive vice president of
OQO. "Desktops are pretty much dead. Most people would prefer to have a
computer they can carry around with them all the time."

The 5-inch by 3-inch device runs Microsoft Windows XP Professional on a
Transmeta Corp (news - web sites). Crusoe processor, of up to 1
gigahertz. It also bundles 256 megabytes of RAM, a 10 gigabyte hard drive,
and two wireless networking connections — using the 802.11b and Bluetooth

A docking cable allows it to connect with an external keyboard, mouse and
monitor. It can also be networked to an existing PC or laptop through an
Ethernet cable or wireless connection.

When undocked, the device's battery life is similar to a laptop's, at 3-8
hours, depending on use."""

Ok, battery life and XPness suck, but still!
