Microsoft unveils Origami
Microsoft has officially unveiled "Origami" today in an attempt to breathe new life into the ultra-portable market. Apparently, our friends from Redmond feels like the Tablet PC concept didn't work out well enough since it has been released and they decided to redesign and rebrand it to give it a second chance.
"The new machines will connect wirelessly to the Internet and carry full-sized hard drives, but they are not intended to replace current PCs....The new PCs are expected to sell for between $599 to $999, but Microsoft said it is possible to sell one for $500 if the manufacturer selects components carefully."
