I just did an interview with OQO‘s Bob Rosin and am uploading the video now. Stay tuned for that. Meanwhile, keep reading for more on the new OQO Model 2+ = pics, specs, and pricing. Can you say $999 and super crisp / sharp?
Keep reading .
Folks, the Model 2+ is a HUGE improvement over the Model 02: a beautiful and crisp OLED display which looks fantastic from every angle; greatly reduced fan noise Ã¢â‚¬” I never heard it during our interview and we were playing h.264 video; 2GB of RAM; an Intel Atom 1.86 Z540 processor, and reduced pricing. For those concerned with the OLED screen maintaining its brightness over time, they shouldn’t be: after 3 years running 10 hours a day, it will still have retained 80% of its’ original brightness. The Model 2+ touch screen is a passive digitizer, and no longer active. Due to the touch screen, there is also a bezel present, which was not there on the Model 02. All of the existing accessories from the Model 02 ( battery, dock, etc) are compatible with the Model 2+. Stay tuned for an interview and hands-on with the OQO Model 2+
OQO has also responded to the market with a much improved pricing model
