    Hype! Hype! Hype!

    This is one overpriced toy. Not for serious computing or mobile work. And they seem to be taking orders but not shipping yet!


    The $$ for this product will doom it right out of the gate. I would bet that they'll drop the price after 3-months of very little uptake.


    My beef is that this thing was suppose to be under $1000 when it was first announced!
    Now it's "under $2000" but that isn't really true either.

    A quote from a review says

    "Still, the OQO has some major downsides. Its hefty price doesn't include a DVD or CD drive, so you can't install most software programs unless you spend money to buy such a drive. There's also no PC card slot, common on laptops, so you can't plug in things like cellphone modems or memory-card readers."

    So you are really looking at over $2000 bucks for a so-so product. Wait for version two or wait for something else!

    Would this type of palmtop be a better option than the tablet PC? I really like that it is so portable but I wonder if being so small limits how functional it is, despite have a full PC crammed into it.
