PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless In a preview of Tuesday afternoon's demonstration, Intel Marketing Director Brad Graff showed CNET News.com several of the Ultra Mobile PC devices, including an example of the kind of hardware that will ship in the next few weeks as part of the Microsoft effort. As earlier reported, the first devices have a 7-inch touch screen, standard x86 processors, and can run full versions of desktop operating systems including the Windows XP variant being used for Origami.

What about powering the device ?

I can't see the accompanying nuclear power station for the 7 inch Orgasmi anywhere . . . sorry spelling error ~ gulp ~ . . Origami ? (was that the right spelling?)

It's just a laptop. It'll probably have a fairly close/slightly smaller to full laptop sized battery. It's smaller physically because it lacks the big screen, keyboard, etc. It's got all the rest of the parts from laptops, which run 3 hours no problem. It's got a smaller screen so it'll draw less power too. ;) A smaller watt-hour battery will be fine.
