Rumors of OQO Model 2+ demise are true

Posted in Computers by Shane McGlaun on April 27th, 2009

oqomodel2-sbI was never a fan of the tiny UMPC machines that hit the market place at inflated prices before the massive netbook revolution. The thing I never liked about the little machines was that the keyboards tended to be sized for thumb use only and I just couldn’t see them being useful in the real world.

One of the cool looking UMPCs at CES 2009 was the OQO Model 2+. The little machine promised an Intel Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, OLED touch screen and more. I was rather excited to see it at CES 2009 and while interesting, I didn’t think it stacked up at all against the mass of netbooks around.

Eee PC 701 prototype UMPC spottedLooks like we will be getting an Eee-branded UMPC at some future date. It almost has to come to pass, what with these drool-worthy pics of an Eee PC 701 prototype, inspired by the original Origami R2H device found on Mobile1.

It does away with the keyboard and loses some weight, at just 1.68 pounds and even comes with a stylus. Sadly there’s no word yet on any release date. It may or may not ever make it into production, but it sure looks awesome and we’ll keep our fingers crossed.

Sleek MBook M1 spotted at CESThe MBook M1 ultra-mobile PC looks like it’s pretty usable, unlike some of its competitors. The keyboard looks comfortable for one thing. This Windows-based UMPC is small in size, yet promises ease of use.

There is one tiny problem though. The device has no USB ports. Yes, it looks nice, but how do you use it productively? It’s use is severely limited.The MBook M1 gets points for looks though. That’s gotta count for something.

DIY gamepad attachment for Sony UX UMPC

DIY Gamepad attachment for Sony UX UMPC
Dan Middle bought Sony’s UX UMPC and found it to be severely lacking when it came to portable gaming. He did what any of us would have done, he took things into his own hands by hacking a cheap USB gamepad. The end result is a set of controls that make available all eight buttons with a single hand, while the other hand is free to aim with the UX’s mouse controls.

The gamepad has been attached to a CF dummy card, slotting into the UX’s CF port. He did some testing and found that it’s pretty decent to use. Vista even recognizes it as a gaming peripheral. I’m not sure if this spells trouble for the PSP and DS Lite, but it’s pretty cool. Video below.

Pix-L mini PC & alarm clock

Pix-L mini PC & alarm clock
Designer Jean Hong has a slightly different vision for the Ultra-Mobile PC (UMPC), and that vision is the Pix-L. The device functions as both an alarm clock and a browser for your bedside. If you want to view it on your nightstand, you can prop up the mini-screen or turn it around for a better angle from above, that way it’s ideal for viewing while you’re lying on your stomach.

Just let it wake you up in the morning, then detach the PC from its stand for portable computing. Even the color scheme shown here is super nice. I would be very surprised if this designer isn’t working for Microsoft very soon.
