    Well, think of what it's supposed to do. They couldn't have created a mini-Tablet the size of a Nano ;)

    Wow. If it has GPS capability and if you can dump your photographs onto it - that's already very, very tempting.

    hey perris! :D

    I have a Garmin GPS that I connect to my laptop on long drives, so yes, I can do otherwise but sometimes I'd like something like a Epson P-4000, but with a price tag of nearly $700 and only the ability to hold photos, it's not enough.

    Definitely quite an improvement over the first Tablet PCs. And that green/white design is definitely meant to be targeted for the Japanese market, since they are more likely to be early adopters than skeptical Americans. But, of course, they also happen to have a black design.

    I'll be curious to see if the Origami will be more than just a one-time gimmick, or if it can be truly useful. And, of course, I'd be interested in seeing how much one of those costs. If it's around USD $500, I'd imagine that it could be quite hot, since it would take some thunder out of the laptop market.

    Ha, I was thinking that after I posted.

    I'm bored at work, please forgive me :D

    That was inspired by a new RSS feed from the Origami site, it planted the seed in me :)

    I was sitting there, "Yes, I want to know where to find you!"

    Well, Week 2 has been activated. Guess we'll get the next missing piece on March 9th according to the little clip. :D

    Seriously, don't get your hopes up too high. There might not even be a product announcement at the end of it. This could very well end up being a product that's still a few months away. It's exciting, but hyping it up too much will only lead to disappointment. :)
