>> Hi, I'm Molly Wood from CNET.com here at CES 2009. I am holding the OQO Model 2 plus. Now OQO is pretty much the computer that launched the ultra-mobile computer revolution. They are running a full version of Windows -- Windows Vista in fact on this machine. It has a touch screen, which is new in the Model 2 plus device. So you can actually navigate with your fingers, as well as sliding up to access this keyboard here. Now the Model 2 plus also has an OLED display. You can see it's extremely bright and the video angle is really nice. OQO says it's particularly good for, as you can see watching video and it does look very crisp. Other things that are new in the Model 2 plus are the addition of an Intel Atom processor, it actually maxes out at 1.86 Gigaghertz and you can get 2 Gigabytes of RAM in here with a 120-Gig hard drive actually not a bad little machine. It's also got an option to upgrade to 3G wireless capability on GSM with a SIM card that goes in here behind the battery or on CDMA -- that of course there's a monthly fee and $150 addition. Now compared to some of the new netbooks we've seen, which are $300, $400, $500, this device is kind of expensive. The base model is $999 and if you add in the upgraded processor and the 3G wireless, you're gonna look at about $1699. It remains to be seen whether that can be competitive in the new netbook landscape, but over all, the OQO has always been a slim, sexy, kind of fun little gadget. At CES 2009, I'm Molly Wood for CNET.com. ^M00:01:38 [ Music ]
