Primero fue OQO, ahora llega el turno de FlipStart
The future of PDAs looks pretty grim with the announcement of FlipStart, a mini PC that runs a fully-functional version of Windows XP. Designed by Vulcan, a company owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, the FlipStart is not only tiny (147x101x25.4mm), but it also packs in a lot of impressive features: 1GHz Transmeta Crusoe processor, 256MB of system memory, a 30GB internal hard disk, 8MB of video RAM, as well as a 5.6in. display (1024×600 pixels). You also get a built-in 1.3-Megapixel digital camera, USB 2.0 port and QWERTY thumb keyboard. OQO (pronounced ‘oh-q-oh’) has also announced a super-tiny Windows XP computer, the Ultra Personal Computer (around £999 ex. VAT), although it doesn’t look as nice and its specifications aren’t as impressive.
