Now you can take your PC everywhere! Your ultra-mobile PC, with the full power of Windows Vista, is designed for your on-the-go lifestyle.
About the size of a paperback book, the UMPC is small and light enough to fit easily into a carry-on, a purse, or a backpack. And yet, the UMPC features a powerful processor, a big, bright display, easy-to-use input options, and support for the latest connectivity standards.
The UMPC offers a display of 4-7 inches and touch capabilities, all in a package that weighs less than 2 pounds. But don't underestimate this small computer—it can run all of the same Windows Vista-compatible software you're already familiar with.
And soon, using a UMPC will be even more fun and convenient. Watch for Microsoft Origami™ Experience 2.0 that is scheduled to ship in mid 2008.
What is Origami Experience?
Scheduled to be available in mid 2008, Origami Experience 2.0 is a suite of software, specifically designed for the ultra-mobile PC, and built on top of the Windows Vista operating system. Origami Experience 2.0 includes three exciting new programs:
Origami™ Picture Password—Log on to your computer by tapping a sequence of targets on a picture instead of typing a text password. It's a quick, fun, and highly secure way to unlock and log on to a UMPC.
Enjoy more in new places
It's all about having fun! The ultra-mobile PC with Origami Experience 2.0 gives you easy access to your music, photos, videos, and games in a new, enjoyable way.
Use it as a digital picture frame with slideshows that you create with your own pictures, and play your favorite music in the background.
Watch a video on your UMPC—on a plane, at a coffee shop, or during the kids' soccer practice.
Play your favorite game while listening to an audio book.
With the full-screen display that is optimized for UMPC viewing, TV, games, movies, and websites have never looked better.
