PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless LonghornBlogs thinks that it has found out what the Origami project really is about: and we've all seen it before. They have photo's of what might be the device: a mini-tablet PC running XP Tablet Edition. "I have an extremely reliable source that told me the device pictured above exists for real now, will cost $500, and will be available before the end of the year." Speculate at will, boys and girls!

If this is true (and I can't see why not), it's very interesting who will build it or better what brand name it will get.

It could be the very first time MS produces hardware (beyond mice and keyboards) under it's own name.

A bit like Apple, I dare say??

Yes a LOT like Apple I remember a device that had a form factor similar to this. The "newton" I think they called it. This one would go similarly well in the market I think.

Too big for a PDA and too Keyboard-less for a Laptop.

I would tend to agree with you.

Except two famous top-selling consoles, maybe?

I think they make pretty good mice, although I prefer Logitech. Also, their joysticks were nice, but I don't think they make them anymore.
