OQO - Ultra Personal Computer OQO, a San Francisco-based company created in 1999 by Jory Bell and Joe Betts-Lacroix, along with other members of the team that developed the Apple PowerBook Titanium, has introduced a full-power, full-feature Windows XP PC that can be carried around in the pocket as easily as a cellular phone. The first products will be available in 2nd half of 2002. According to the company, “the OQO ultra-personal computer is the only computer most people will ever want or need.” Features include:

  • Windows XP
  • 200 dpi, 4″ color LCD
  • Crusoe processor
  • 256MB memory
  • 10 GB Hard Disk Drive
  • Firewire (1394) port
  • USB 1.1 port
  • OQO docking connector
  • Synaptics touchscreen
  • Advanced lithium polymer battery
  • Audio out port
  • Built-in high fidelity microphone
  • Integrated 802.11b and Bluetooth wireless transceivers

If you read the press release on the OQO site you will notice that the device utilizes the same Toshiba 1.8-inch HDD that is in the iPod. Imagine, if you will, the same device running Mac OS X light (rumored to be in development) – can you say SuperPod?
