Customary Origami Post

Wednesday, March 01, 2006

A quick primer in BBC news on Origami. If you dont know about it yet, then i'd suggest that you keep monitoring Slashdot, Digg and Tech Memorandum. It appeared first on Digg, then on Tech Memorandum and finally on Slashdot. After that it has kicked off a virtual storm in blogosphere. You got to give it to Microsoft for creating the hype and not commiting on when it will be launched. But then every move of MS is closely watched.

What appears is that it is a handheld device with some of the hottest technologies. WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, you name it and they have it. Not clear about HSDPA/EVDO, but will be pretty cool to have it. Most probably also has ambitions of becoming the convergence device as well. With so many desriables already on the list, now we have another device to contend with. Things just keep on getting intersting.

My hunch is that it is a Network Computer. Lets wait and watch.
