OQO model 02 Ships
OQO on Tuesday revealed that its eagerly anticipated model 02 has begun shipping. The UMPC, which had first been announced at January's CES expo, is built as a potentially complete replacement for a notebook and is one of the first at its 7-inch size to ship with Windows Vista onboard as well as EVDO for Sprint or Verizon subscribers.
A base model starts at $1,499 with a 1.2GHz CPU, 30GB hard drive, 512MB of RAM, and Windows XP Home. The line peaks at $1,849 with a 1.5GHz processor, doubled memory and storage, and Vista Business. EVDO is currently a $150 option regardless of the provider.
