Yesterday a video showing a prototype of a Windows-based portable handheld was leaked. It was immediately linked to Microsoft's ongoing Origami Project but a spokesperson said today that the video was to old to be accurate.
"While Origami is a concept we've been working on with partners," the spokesperson wrote, "please know that the video seen on Digital Kitchen's web site is a year old and represents our initial exploration into this form factor, including possible uses and scenarios." In coming weeks, however, Microsoft will be eager to reveal further details, the spokesperson continues, "so stay tuned."
More details and photos of the video can be found at TG Daily.
