Tech Industry: OQO Model O2

At CES 2008, Tom Merritt takes a look at this mini PC.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> Hey I'm Tom Merritt, Editor from CNET.com and CES 2008 and we'll take a look at the OQO-O2, or if you're European E-2. This is the next in line of the OQO series. It has Windows Vista on it; I did ask you can get it with Windows XP Pro or XP Tablet, it's a tablet screen. This has a 1.6 gigahertz processor inside of it, it has USB connection as well as a docking port connection that we'll talk about in a minute; it also has HDMI so if you're if you're watching some HDMI flash video you can hook it up to your big screen TV as well. It's a mini-PC, it's a portable computer, fully functional Windows Operating system on here, keyboard is a mobile keyboard, you might have to get used to these mouse buttons a little, left and right click are above and below each other and you have the number keys over here on the side. But overall the mouse works pretty well. Once I got used to it I was able to navigate around, go to my website, things like that. Now the cool thing is they have this dock available as well and you can use this as your work computer so you set it up, hook it up to your monitor and your keyboard and it's like a desktop computer; then you can pick it up, take it with you. And you've got EVDO connection--it's a 3G connection so your internet is wireless and with you all the time. Configurations run from 1200 up to 3,000 dollars. There is a 120 gigabyte hard drive available max; you can also get a 64 gigabyte solid state flash drive as well; that's the one that's gonna run you 3,000 dollars. They're hoping that this will take over the mini-PC market. It's gonna be available now, you can go buy it and they just made an announcement that future models will hopefully incorporate Wymax; they're doing a demonstration of that technology with Sprint. Once again it's the OQO-O2 at CES 2008. I'm Tom Merritt. ^M00:01:47 [ Music ] ^M00:01:50
