OQO Inc., mobile computing innovator and creator of the world’s smallest fully-functional Windows Vista ® PC, today announced that the OQO model 02 has been recognized with a Stevie Award in the Best New Computer Hardware category at The 2008 American Business Awards last week. Hailed as “the business world’s own Oscars” (New York Post, April 27, 2005), The American Business Awards is the only national, independent business awards program honoring organizations of all types — public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
““The entire team at OQO is honored and excited to be recognized with this prestigious business award,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Bob Rosin, senior vice president of sales and marketing, OQO. ““This award recognizes the innovations that OQO has pioneered in ultra mobile computing and our commitment to category-leading engineering, product design, and quality. As UMPC’s and Mobile Internet Devices become mainstream, the industry continues to follow the lead that OQO has established.Ã¢â‚¬Â
OQO pioneered the ultra mobile PC category, and the OQO model 02 computer has been critically acclaimed as the leading product in this growing market. With the full functionality of Windows ® XP or Vista plus embedded 3G connectivity in a form factor small enough to fit in your pocket, the model 02 allows users to run full enterprise applications and productivity tools anytime and anywhere.
The awards were presented during ceremonies at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on June 12. Members of the Awards’ Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors and their staffs selected Stevie winners from among the Finalists. Finalists were chosen by business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May.
