Microsoft Origami

Watch for the March 2nd Introduction of Origami

A number of Blog sites have beat me again with the news of the newest Microsoft device currently called Microsoft Origami. That’s what I get for sleeping in on Sundays.  Both Bink’s Watching Microsoft and SunBelt BLOG have other photos of the what appears to be a mix between a Pocket PC and Tablet PC. If you click on Design Tastes Good they have instructions to a design site which at this time still have their promotional Flash available

I’m a huge fan of my Tablet PC from Motion Computing so I’m eager to hear all the specs on Origami. I’m never expected I could use any pen interface but I’ve found there are still plenty of tasks you can complete without writing a lot of text. Microsoft has done a fantastic job in hand writing even though every time I write “you” it thinks I wrote “yin”.

It’s no accident that the timing of this announcement comes at the most vulnerable time for the Blackberry market.  Origami will however kick the BlackBerry’s ass either way.
