Shiny Video Preview: OQO e2 UMPC
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.
