OQO Unveils the Model 01+ Pocketable Windows XP Computer

From the press release:

OQO today announces its newest ultra personal computer, the OQO model 01+. With upgraded specs, new features and additional accessories all packed in the same 14 ounce pocketable design that made the model 01 the smallest and most mobile Windows XP computer on the market, the model 01+ offers even more PC functionality everywhere you go.

In addition to upgraded memory, larger hard drive, and faster USB, the model 01+ incorporates an internal speaker and improved pen-based digitizer. The model 01+ now ships with a new universal power supply which adds support for airplane and automobile DC power outlets.

“The OQO remains one of the most unique personal computers on the market and is proving to be valuable in industries such as healthcare and public safety,” said Rob Enderle, Principal Analyst for the Enderle Group. “In a world of otherwise similar products the OQO stands out as unique, amazing, and incredibly useful”.

The OQO model 01+ is optimized for highly mobile professionals in industries including public safety, healthcare, field service, insurance, manufacturing, sales and pharmaceutical.
