Lately there are rumors about the Microsoft Origami project (which has been planned for more than a year). At the moment, there are already pictures and videos out, so we know it’s a UMPC, which stands for Ultra Mobile PC. Which is smaller than a laptop/notebook but bigger than a PDA. I’m expecting those devices to cost at least 500-800 euros.
And what about the Alexandria project?
Microsoft used to announce stuff a lot sooner, so that when a product was released, you’d already know all the good stuff. So is Microsoft going more the Apple way? Building up hype before an announcement (as in Apple’s keynotes) to trigger a buying frenzy.
