Well, I guess that’s confidence. HP must think they’ve got a winner on their hands, and I’m surely hoping they do. According to reports from DigiTimes they’ve ordered up 2 million of the yet to be released Compaq 2133 UMPCs that we and everybody have been following. As Engadget points out, that’s 10% of HP’s worldwide laptop sales last year. I think the price is going to be a real determining factor here. Some reports peg it at $600, some at $400. In the end, I’m betting we’ll see some different configurations with different prices.
