LAPTOP Magazine reviews the OQO model 02. With integrated mobile broadband, better performance, and longer battery life, OQO's model 02 is a UMPC worth owning. Introduced to the public by none other than Bill Gates at CES in 2007, the $1,500 OQO Model 02 was the world's smallest computer to run the latest full versi. But the new OQO model 02, with its mobile broadband and new solid-state hard drive, is helping us broaden our thinking about the UMPC category. Its elegant design, improved usability, and excellent. The OQO model 01+, like its predecessor, is a story of compromises. This one is slightly more usable and flexible, admittedly, but the bigger considerations still remain. It’s great that the USB. OQO is a San Francisco based company started by former employees from both Apple and IBM. In January at the CES show in Las Vegas OQO unveiled a working model of their palm sized Model 01 notebook.

Reviewed November 19, 2007 by Lisa Gade, Editor in Chief

When we reviewed the OQO model 01, the original OQO, back in mid-2005, we were impressed with this handheld Windows machine's ambition and incredibly small size, However, there were plenty of shortcomings-- the digitizer didn't work well, the machine was slow and hot running, and the specs were lacking. We were by no means alone in our complaints and OQO listened: the model 02 addresses most all of those complaints and is finally a handheld computer we can live with, if not recommend. In fact, last year we felt the Sony UX beat the original OQO hands down. This year, it's definitely a tighter race.

The display panel slides up to reveal the large thumb keyboard and pointing device.

Not everyone needs or wants a Windows computer that fits in a coat pocket, nor are they willing to pay for it. If you're reading this, we suspect you're interested in a 1 lb. Windows Vista or XP palmtop computer that costs around $1,700 to $2,500. Hey, miniaturization still costs big bucks. The model 02 line actually starts out with a very basic $1,300 model running XP Home on a 1.2GHz VIA processor with 512 megs of RAM that didn't impress us in terms of performance when tested it for several days. So our hopes weren't too high for Vista which is much more resource intensive than XP. But OQO's new 'Best' model 02 with a 32 gig SSD (solid state drive) which costs $2,349 model pleasantly surprised us. Vista Business runs responsively enough, though of course it can't compare with a full-sized notebook running on an Intel Core 2 Duo. OQO tells us that they optimized Vista for a better experience, and they certainly did tweak a few things that count (like turning off SuperFetch which is a resource hog on systems with less than 2 gigs of RAM). The VIA processor used in the OQO isn't exactly a speed champ, but it manages to keep up with relatively little lag in business productivity and Internet apps. Though our 'Best' model shipped with Vista Business, we'd expect that Windows XP would really run nicely on this tiny beast.

In the Box

OQO includes a standard 4500 mAh Lithium Ion battery, compact world charger, a pre-installed screen protector, spare track cap, VGA + Ethernet dongle adapter and documentation in the box.

Display and Digitizer

The OQO features an 800 x 480 display with active digitizer, just like the model 01. Despite the same basic specs, there's a world of difference-- the model 02's display is glossy, super-sharp and very bright. It's simply gorgeous and on par with Sony's UX line. Unlike the UX, text is very easy to read because the OQO's resolution is lower-- it's not trying to cram near-standard notebook resolution into a 5' panel. The drawback is lots of scrolling, and occasional dialogs running off the screen (there's a zoom key to help with these). While the digitizer on the model 01 drove us nuts, the model 02's is accurate and responsive. Unlike UMPCs, the Sony Vaio UX and Fujitsu U810, the OQO uses and active digitizer which means you'll need to use an EMR pen rather than a finger or PDA stylus. Active digitizers are generally more accurate and don't pick up spurious input if your hand rests on the glass. In a nearly pocketable computer, we'd opt for the convenience of finger input and the lower cost of passive digitizers. An EMR pen is included with the Windows XP Tablet Edition bundle, otherwise it will cost you an additional $29 (or you can use a Wacom pen or EMR pen from another tablet PC if you have one). XP Tablet Edition will set you back an additional $100, but there's no additional charge for Vista Business or XP Pro, and Vista Business contains all of XP Tablet's pen support and more.
