OQO UltraPersonal Computer

OQO UltraPersonal Computer

The makers of OQO Model 1 Ultra Personal Computer (UPC) advertise it as the only computer you will ever need. It is truly the smallest computer on the market, and it is as functional as a desktop or laptop because it runs on Windows XP Professional operating system, and it is as portable as a Pocket PC.

In the office it can be connected to an external monitor and keyboard and work as a desktop. In the field, it has a slide-out keyboard, or it can be connected to an external Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. It has InfraRed and Wi-Fi connectivity as well.

The UPC weighs about twice as much as a PPC at 14 ounces, but it packs a lot more power with a 20 GB hard drive, a 1GB processor, and 256 MB DDR RAM. The display features a 5 inch screen (800x480), which is supposedly indoor/outdoor readable. The screen slides upward to reveal a fully-functional, mini QWERTY thumb keyboard beneath it, complete with a joystick button, left, and right mouse button emulators. It also comes with a digital pen for interaction with the screen, which makes it like a Tablet PC as well.

Let’s see what comes in the box. I like the heavy, steel docking stand with its non-skid bottom. It has been nicely designed for cables to be plugged into it conveniently without interfering with its functionality. An AC charger is included that plugs into the bottom of the unit. A multi-purpose cable allows you to connect to a wide array of external devices such as video projectors, monitors CD/DVD drives, cameras, phones, computers, expansion card readers and more. I’ve never seen such a versatile cable with USB, firewire, Ethernet, and all the rest. There is a black, stretchy nylon protective slip case. OQO comes with Windows XP Professional and Microsoft Office Small Business Edition already installed, which means that you have Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, Outlook with Business Contact Manager, and Publisher, a powerful set of tools. An installation disk for these programs also comes in the box along with minimal get-started manuals, one for the computer and one for the software.

Walking around the edges of the device you will find the power plug on the bottom along with docking connectors. There’s an additional antenna port and a creatively designed multi-function thumbwheel. To the far right is a USB port. Turning the corner on the right side, you will find an audio jack. Above that is the Wi-Fi antenna. On the top corner the digipen silo is situated. On the left side you will see the Bluetooth antenna and below that a firewire port. I certainly would like to see at least a port for an SD card, if not a CF slot as well, but space must be too precious for that.

I think we’re ready for a test drive now. This machine certainly comes with a generous component of software. We may as well listen to some music while we’re running it through its paces. Whoops, it has no speaker. You ...
