The OQO device contains a screen with near print quality resolution (200dpi)
resulting in a better user experience when watching MPEG formatted movies and video.
The 4" diagonal LCD screen is the optimum in size and weight
for holding in a hand at a typical distance that of 8-20" from the eye.
The relative size of the OQO LCD is equivalent to a notebooks with a 12-14" LCD
that rests on a desk at a distance of 1-2 feet from a typical user.
(I hope it is 800 X 600, but VGA is only 640 x 480, which Windows normally Sux @)
The OQO initially contains a Toshiba 1.8" HDD with 10GB of storage.
This is enough space to store the Windows XP operating system and over 1000 MP3 songs.
Alternatively the HDD can store an average of 3 movies in MPEG4 format.
(Now that We all have 2.5" laptop hard drives.)
For office and email applications, the OQO ultra-personal computer has a battery life of 8 hours.
For MPEG movies the average battery life is 2 hours. For MP3 music the battery life is 7 hours.
The OQO device has a standby battery life of over a week. (I could live with this.)
I wonder what will make it to the Shelf & what will be Vaperware !
