Innovative PC-maker OQO created the uPC (ultra-portable computer) genre with their initial product, the Model 01. Now, they have refined and improved this initial accomplishment with the all new Model 02.
The OQO 02 measures 5.6 x 3.3 x 1.0in (142 x 84 x 25mm) and weighs less than 1lb (less than 450g).
The OQO 02 is powered by a 1.5GHz VIA C7M ultra low-voltage CPU that breezes through Windows XP, Windows XP Tablet, or Vista.
The 5" 800x480 outdoor-readable glossy TFT is nothing short of spectacular; it slides up to reveal the keyboard. There is 1GB (max) RAM, and up to 60GB hard drive.
The hard drive has three useful features: it is shock mounted, it has automatic dropdetect to minimize the risk of data loss, and the ability to create a hardware-encrypted virtual hard drive (which Windows recognizes as a separate letter drive) to protect sensitive data.
Video performance, driven by a VIA VX700 with integrated GPU with dynamically allocated RAM, is particularly impressive. As with other uPCs, you can "zoom in" (decrease screen resolution) in order to make small text easier to read. But uniquely, you can also "zoom out" -- increase screen resolution to beyond the native 800x480, all the way to 1200x720 (as well as 1000x600).
Video output is supported on VGA, HDMI, & DVI, up to 1920x1200 resolution. Dual-display is also supported.
The OQO 02 has several different input methods.
-There is a touch screen with active digitizer (digitizer pen optional).
-There is also a track stick pointer, which is the method that most people use. Along the lower right-hand corner of the screen, a touch sensitive area makes it easy to scroll vertically or horizontally through webpages or documents. There is a "cool blue"-backlit keyboard with excellent tactile feedback.
There is also 802.11a/b/g
Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR stereo headset support.
The 02 has nine integrated antennas (you can use Bluetooth and WiFi at the same time without conflict) and a retractable whip antenna for Wireless WAN (use it when you need it).
