MORE on Origami — CNet coverage

Well, being under NDA has it’s advantages, and it’s disadvantages. Getting to see new stuff even months ahead is great, but not being able to tell anyone about it is NOT fun. I am enjoying watching all the speculation out there though, so we will continue to report to you when we see a well written piece on the subject!


This article from Cnet is one of the more in-depth looks at what information is surfacing.

Here is a sample of what they are saying:

“Microsoft’s goal is to create a blueprint for devices that could sell for $600 or less, although the actual prices will depend greatly on what manufacturers decide to include. Origami is capable of supporting features like GPS, Bluetooth, 3G cellular technology and Wi-Fi, though each of these adds to the cost of the device.

Rumors have been swirling about the device over the past week. The Origami Project Web site, which is owned by Microsoft, pledges that more information will come Thursday. However, sources say this is likely to be more buzz, with actual details not expected until later in March, likely at the CeBit show that takes place March 9-15 in Hanover, Germany”.
