First look: OQO e2 Vista PC

OQO e2

OQO e2The world's smallest Windows Vista PC has launched and Absolute Gadget was there to get our mitts around its bite-size frame. The OQO model e2 promises to do everything a hulking great PC can do, and it fits in your pocket.

Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the OQO model e2 could certainly take the place of your laptop.

On first impressions the little trinket of a device was small, but felt solid in the hand. It features a sliding keypad with neat light sensors in the keys that light up when conditions darken.

Dedicated right and left mouse-click buttons and a scrolling switch to control the cursor were easy to use, but may take some getting used to. Touch Scrollers on the side of the screen to move up and across a page were also an interesting addition.

The e2 will be available with a 1.5GHz or 1.6GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM and up to 120GB hard disk space. It also has a HDMI output and can run anything from Vista Ultimate, Business, and Windows Tablet through to Windows XP Professional, seemingly without any problems.

The device has built in Wi-Fi for ultra-mobile Facebooking, as well as Bluetooth.

And when its docked in the docking station, the OQO e2 can be connected to a larger PC monitor for a full-size display.
