For anyone who cares, the Origami Project is apparently the first incarnation of Microsoft's UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC). It supposed to be about the size of a paperback but run Windows XP Tablet Edition. It will be a PC/game/media device.

Here's some of the current buzz: http://www.engadget.com/2006/03/02/origami-refolded-heres-what-we-know/

A buddy of mine has the Gateway tablet and I've worked with Toshiba tablets. The handwriting recognition amazes me; my handwriting is very messy and XP Tablet Edition gets an extremely high percentage of my words correct; probably 99%. No training is required and you don't have to learn a new way to write letters (as in the old Palm days.)

On another note... there were three stories posted just today on the Origami at the same site. This link will show you those stories (but not all stories will be about Origami.) http://handhelds.engadget.com/

Yeah... I have a vx6700 and a laptop. Something very very small and portable that can do almost everything I need to do when on a jobsite, and something I can leave in my car just in case, and can do all my real office work when I need it. I think having something right in the middle of the two for size would tick me off more then it would make my life better. But hey, I guess it would be neat for some things... like ummm... Ahhh... I'll post again when I come up with something. :rolleyes:
