OQO 02 at Dynamism

Dynamism.com announces the OQO Model 02 is now available for immediate purchase at Dynamism.com. Measuring 5.6 x 3.3 x 1.0in and weighing less than 1 lb, the OQO 02 is powered by a 1.5GHz VIA ultra low-voltage CPU that breezes through Windows XP, or Windows XP Tablet. It features 1 GB (max) RAM, and up to 60GB hard drive.

The new OQO 02 is interesting from a review standpoint. OQO comprehensively addressed the complaints that dogged the original 01 -- adjustments that are outlined at www.dynamism.com/oqo02, which also features an excellent comparison of the OQO 02 and the Sony UX.

Featuring a hard drive with three useful features, the OQO 02 is shock mounted, has automatic drop detect to minimize the risk of data loss and the ability to create a hardware-encrypted virtual hard drive to protect sensitive data.

Video performance, driven by a VIA VX700 with integrated GPU with dynamically allocated RAM is particularly impressive. Users can “zoom in” in order to make small text easier to read and also “Zoom out” to increase screen resolution beyond the native 800x480. This feature is useful when viewing large documents, graphics or web pages. Video output is supported on VGA, HDMI and DVI, up to 1920x1200. Dual-display is also supported.

Customers can purchase the OQO 02 with integrated Sprint EVDO WWAN for ultimate connectivity on-the-go. (Note: Sprint module will work on Sprint-only and not any other carrier. This WWAN option only functions in the United States and requires a data service subscription with the carrier at additional cost to any existing plan.)

As with all products on Dynamism.com, the OQO Model 02 includes unlimited Dynamism toll-free technical support and Dynamism.com Rescue Warranty. Shipping for this new model will begin in February.

I have to confess that I liked the design on this one but the price tag and the 5 inches display are bigs no nos. I also think that the small keyboard are practically useless.
