OQO is Done, But Tech/Team May Live On

OQOTalk posted a note from OQO stating that the company is unable to offer support for its customers because of its financial problems. I happened to run into Bob Rosin, OQO’s SVP of sales and marketing, last night in front of my garage and he confirmed that OQO is finished.

“”We are sad to report that due to financial constraints, OQO is not able to offer repair and service support at this time. We are deeply sorry that despite our best intentions, we are unable to provide continued support for our faithful customers. Please accept our sincerest apologies”

He said that the technology and engineering team will live on if a deal they’re working on with another PC vendor pans out. As I wrote a few weeks ago, nobody’s answering the phone at OQO. The OQO stock is completely depleted, which means anyone hoping to score a final unit or two is out of luck. Bob said they did consider producing a final run of devices, but things didn’t work out.
