Microsoft Origami UMPCs a huge flop

Posted on Monday, June 12 2006 @ 12:40:46 CEST by

The Inquirer calls the Microsoft Origami Ultra Mobile PC concept the company's biggest flop since Windows ME.
I tried out three of the UMPCs that Taiwan's manufacturers were showing at Computex in Taipei, and talked to some of the people who worked on them and are now trying to sell them.

My impression of each of these mobile tablet PCs was the same: they're a bundle of compromises. They try to fill a lot of different roles, but are second best at all of them. The manufacturers have made a valiant first effort, but Microsoft's UMPC blueprint is not ready to be turned into a viable product.
