OQO model 02 Upgrade

OQO today launched an upgrade of its model 02 UMPC, improving its speed and storage while also making the system more accessible. The 5-inch handheld now runs on up to a 1.6GHz Via C7M mobile chip, bolstering its performance in Windows Vista on the top model. Every model gets an increase in storage with a base model now climbing from 30GB to 40GB and the top versions climbing from 60GB to 80GB. A third option of a solid-state drive gives owners 32GB of flash storage that greatly reduces loading times and renders the system virtually skip-proof in the event of a fall.

The model 02's other core features, including built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, a hybrid Ethernet/VGA adapter, and HDMI output are all the same as the system which launched earlier this year. But prices have dropped, the company says; a base UMPC with a 1.2GHZ CPU, 512MB of RAM, and the new 40GB hard disk sells for $1,299, about $200 less than its predecessor. All new systems should be available today and have the option of cellular broadband from Sprint or Verizon.
