OQO Model 02 UMPC To Demonstrate Integrated WiMAX

The UMPC market has been slow to pick up steam, but as their processors get more powerful and the features more plentiful, more people are starting to enter into the ultramobile segment. The OQO model 02 UMPC is not a new unit in the strictest sense, but the company is demonstrated an industry first at CES 2008 by integrating the unit with full-on WiMAX connectivity.

OQO has teamed up with Sprint on the effort, naturally, giving the compact handheld the ability to surf the web (at blazing speeds) anywhere you have a WiMAX connection. This is certainly more convenient than trying to hunt down a WiFi hotspot every time you get inspired to write a blog post. With a five-inch display and full computer functionality (including Windows Vista Business), the OQO Model 02 is almost as powerful as some compact laptops. The WiMAX is a definite plus.

It’s not like the OQO Model 02 UMPC is new to the mobile connectivity game either, because it is already available with 802.11b/b WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR (with A2DP), and EV-DO Rev. A. Rounding out the specs are a sliding thumb keyboard, integrated track stick, and a digitizer for use with an optional digital pen.
