OQO has a new Tablet PC – Model 02 and Dynamism already has it available for order.
I got to play with it very shortly at the Microsoft Partner Pavillion on Sunday, and the keyboard is much better than the Model 01. The keys are not flush and are back lit. In addition, it now features a 1.5ghz processor from Via. Pricing seems a little steep at $2149 for the Tablet Edition, and unfortunately, the screen is still not touch enabled, but the integrated WWAN from Sprint, and the six hour extended battery are much welcome features. Looks like they listened to a lot of customer feedback.
We have an interview with Bob Rosin, OQO’s CEO, on Monday mornng to go over the OQO in more detail and will post a video of that interview on Monday night, but here are some specs from Dynamism on the Model 02 from OQO.
Prices start at $1599 for XP Home Edition. Tablet Edition prices start at $2149.
