Microsoft With speculation flying about what 'fun new products' Apple plans to announce next week, from video iPods to DVR-enabled Mac minis, Microsoft has its own surprise up its sleeve. The web is abuzz with guesses as to what the Redmond company plans to unveil at origamiproject.com on March 2nd. The site, registered by Microsoft and 'discovered' early this week, provides few hints. A Flash animation pops up three questions: 'do you know what I can do? Or where I can go? Or how I can change your life?' It ends with the text, 'Learn more on 3.2.06'.

Not like Nokia 770

This is not a competitor to the Nokia 770. The 770 is designed to be a small form factor mobile device (PDA-ish). Origami is a tablet PC, you can't put it in your pocket.

It's really funny how they tried to make the Origami look portable. <Kid playing video games gets up to leave>. "This thing is to fscking big to put anywhere, I guess I'll just carry it in my hand. What convenience!"


The only use for this thing is for surfing when on the couch or something. Nice to do but it won't be worth it at the price tag they are going to be setting. It will flop and slowly fade away. Microsoft has always had a disconnect with consumers.
