Via says hold off buying Origami PC?

The UK web site Computer Active is reporting that Via is not giving much praise to current Ultra-Mobile PC devices. Well, if this story is true, I can imagine the Ultra-Mobile PC vendors not being too happy with this statement from Via:

“Colin Brix, chipset platform group international marketing specialist, said although such devices would find strong markets in the future, the current generation needed better battery life, and to be slightly smaller, slimmer and more powerful. ‘Some of the first models we are seeing are not at their optimum,’ he said.’The technology is there, but for early devices they are really rushed.”


Ouch. That certainly will not spur on sales of Ultra-Mobile PC’s, especially those with Via processors.
