There is still so much hype going around about Ultra-Mobile PC’s that it is nice to occasionally come across someone who has taken the time to do some mostly accurate reporting. The facts presented in this article by Michelle Johnson for ComputerWorld magazine is a pretty good place to start if you are just learning some initial facts about this new platform. In terms of “innacuracies”, I only took note of a lack of mention of the Via processor models, but overall, good read for UMPC noobies. Here’s a quick blurb:
“Microsoft Corp. has finally unwrapped the mysterious Origami. Dubbed an ultramobile PC, or UMPC for short, it has elicited a mix of yawns and thumbs up. It’s not for sale yet, but if you’re wondering what the hype is about, this FAQ will shed some light.”
