There has been some buzz surrounding
Microsoft's mysterious “Origami”
project, but the device has now stepped out into the open a few days
ahead of schedule. Digital Kitchen has posted a Shockwave Flash video
of Microsoft's new portable media device ahead of its scheduled March
From the main
site (pop-ups must be disabled), Click "Enter" on the
pop-up, click “Work,” then click on "BrandTheatre."
From there, click "Microsoft Origami" and you should be
presented with a rather lengthy video on Origami. If that link gets
taken down, you can also view it here.
From watching the video, Origami looks
to be a primarily pen input based “mini TabletPC” device with USB
host functionality and built-in GPS. Origami of course has wireless access and
can tap into your existing Windows Media Center based PC to playback
music/video from anywhere around your home. Also shown in the video is a person playing what appears to be Halo.
Could this all-in-one device really be all things to all people?
