OQO creator of the world's smallest fully-functional Windows Vista PC, today announced the new model 2+ with Intel Atom processor, the world's first PC OLED display, and worldwide 3G capability. Word about the new Atom based OQO leaked before the end of 2008.
Based on the 1.86GHz Intel Atom processor and 2GB RAM, the OQO model 2+ offers performance up to twice as fast as its predecessor and includes an embedded touchscreen for easier input.
The new OQO model 2+ is the world's first PC with an embedded Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) display. Users will immediately notice the screen's dramatically increased brightness and contrast with better outdoor readability, greater range of colors, extremely wide viewing angles, faster response time, and improved battery life. The integrated touchscreen is more robust and accurate than conventional touchscreen technology and supports stylus as well as finger-based input.
Like its predecessor, the OQO model 2+ weighs less than one pound and is truly pocketable with dimensions of 5.6"(W) x 3.3"(H) x 1.0"(D) and the best-in-class integrated backlit thumb keyboard. The model 2+ supports large external displays up to 1920x1200 with HDMI/DVI and VGA interfaces, offers Wi-Fi(R) 802.11a/b/g and Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, and is compatible with the full range of OQO model 02/e2 accessories. These include the OQO docking station with embedded dual layer DVD+/-RW/RAM drive, as well as a wide range of cases, GPS and vehicle mounts, and power solutions including standard and extended batteries and the OQO air/auto power adapter.
The OQO model 2+ will be available in the first half of 2009 with pricing starting at $999. Dynamism is already listing the OQO model 2+ with an estimated shipping date of May 22nd.
