Microsoft Origami / Intel UPMC



March 11, 2006 12:39 am






Many of you may have seen the immense media hubbub regarding the ‘Origami Project‘; many news and gossip sites have been speculating what the Microsoft and Intel project really could be.

The hardware device itself was showcased at CeBIT in Hanover this week – and honestly reviews have been mixed.

My biggest question to you – is this just another gadget? (After all – it’s just a small form factor Windows XP Tablet Edition box.) Do any of you expect to see these appear in a corporate setting? Will any of you be expected to manage these devices!

I wager $5 that someone has SUSE Linux running on one of these things within a day or so of ship!

    We’ll definately end up with a few of them. Quite a few of our mobile staff have complained that the Tablets are to big to carry around all day. This form will be ideal for them.
