Microsoft’s Origami project is in fact ultramobile PC devices as most rumours revealed earlier (here and here). At CeBit, Samsung, Asus and Founder Group (from China) displayed devices based on this new form factor. Essentially, all come with touch-sensitive screens (generally about 7-inches diagonally), 30-60GB hard drives, Intel low power processors, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB ports.
Microsoft contributed the Windows XP Tablet PC edition which comes with a new Touch Pack add-on which allows users to type with their thumbs directly on the screen. Microsoft also showed modified versions of Internet Explorer, OneNote and Windows Media Player.
In terms of pricing, Samsung’s Q1 will sell for about $1190 USD at its launch in May.
