The pre-CES rumors were spot on again with the rumored OQO Model 2+actually being announced and shown off at CES. The OQO model 2+ does have an OLED display (seems to be a popular theme at CES this year) and more for a full PC in your pocket.

CES 2009: OQO announces model 2+ with OLED and Intel Atom processor

Specifications include the following:

  • 1.86GHz Intel Atom Z540 (1.33 GHz Z520 an option too)
  • 2GB RAM (1GB optional)
  • 120GB HDD (60GB HDD and 60GB SSD options available)
  • Windows XP Home, Pro and Vista Business options
  • 800×480 5 inch WVGA active matrix touchscreen OLED (LCD also an option)
  • Integrated WWAN option
  • Integrated 802.11 a/b/g WiFi
  • Integrated Bluetooth 2.0
  • Integrated backlit QWERTY keyboard
  • 4500 mAh battery (9000 mAh option available)
  • Size: 5.6 x 3.3 x 1.0 inches and 1.0 lb

The 1.33 GHz Windows XP model with LCD display, 60GB HDD, and 1GB RAM starts at US$999 and the 1.86 GHz model with Vista Business or XP PRo, 120GB HDD, 2GB RAM, and OLED starts at US$1,499. These are actually reasonable prices compared to what the OQO models started at in the past. The devices ordered today are estimated to ship in May of 2009.

The 60GB SSD adds US$700 to the price and the WWAN options (HSPA, Sprint EVDO, or Verizon EVDO) add on another US$149. Docking stations and other accessories are also available at rather high prices so your bottom line cost could easily be over US$2,000. I like the idea behind the OQO model 2+, but still can’t afford such a device myself. Anyone interested in this latest model? (story Link)
