OQO model 02 upgrade

OQO's presence at CES is being used to release new options for the model 02, its Windows-based UMPC. Buyers can now choose a new SSD drive, doubled in size from 32 to 64GB; the option is significant in that few full-sized notebooks offer a 64GB SSD, let alone a device as small as a UMPC. The model 02 has also been given the option of a "sunlight-optimized" display, making it more practical for people working outdoors. The previous screen continues to be the default.

The top configuration of the computer now includes Windows Vista, a 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, and local wireless in the form of 802.11a/b/g and Bluetooth 2.0. In the United States, people can connect to EVDO Rev. A broadband through Sprint and Verizon. Prices for the model 02 start at $1,299.
