OQO has been threatening to release its Model 01 Windows XP palmtop device for what seems like forever now. The company has finally come up with something a bit more specific than ‘soon’, and has announced that the handheld will be launched in the USA on 14th October.
We’ve yet to see if the Model 01 will be following in the great tradition of handheld hybrid devices that sink without trace shortly after their release. It’s based on a 1GHz Transmeta processor with 256MB of RAM and a 20GB hard drive. Other features include a 5-inch widescreen panel and both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.
