Shiny Video Preview: OQO e2 UMPC

Computers, Video Reviews

US readers will recognise this as the 02, but the e2 is the European launch version, heralding the start of OQO’s plan for world domination. Entirely UMPC-focussed, the company has produced the smallest available UMPC (for now), which is a just-about palm-sized, comfortable slider UMPC designed for thumb-typing.

It was pretty responsive and although this version isn’t touchscreen, UMPC’s ex-IBM engineers brought the famous nipple trackstick with them. It takes a while to get used to the separate left and right click buttons, though. This is a clever machine with WiFi, 3G and Bluetooth; have a look at the super-quick rundown and if it catches your eye come back soon for a full video review. The device is available from eXpansys now.
