Origami

The elusive ultra-portable device being developed by Microsoft . No not just another hand held but a cross between a treo , blackberry and an ipod . An all in one media solution . The system, as described Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates, would weigh about a pound, feature a battery that could hold a charge for a full day, and integrate a camera, a phone and a music device in a single form factor.
My guess is the next gen office companion full with blutooth , wi-fi , touchscreen and internet . Hopefully this is going to be an actual product and not just a “technology” that Microsoft releases to the industry .

Microsoft has actually planned a media event to be held within hours of the apple event today( where new mac mini and an ipod hi fi was released ) .
Could Microsoft make the true ipod/blackberry killer… ?
