OQO Video Review on jkOnTheRun
If you are interested in miniPC devices, the OQO changed from vapourware a few years ago to an actual product, the first to actually hit the mainstream. I played briefly with one while attending the CTIA Wireless 2005 in San Francisco, but not enough to write a review.

JK however has posted an OQO video review on-line now for your pleasure.

I haven't watched that yet - I am currently away on holiday (New Year) and my only connections to the word are Vodafone GPRS and Telecom CDMA 1xRTT - both are not fast enough for downloading files larger than a few megabytes really.

I am posting the link here because I see in our forums a couple of people asking about the OQO, so this is a good starting point for more information.

I have asked OQO for a review unit a couple of times. At first they didn't even bother replying emails. Then they replied saying Geekzone was on the review list waiting for a unit. Then they sent me an email saying they have no interest in reviews from domains hosted outside the US. I even asked for a review unit to use while in the US if the problem was sending things our way (which shouldn't be a problem, seeing we receive lots of things from overseas).

A few months back I posted about PR companies that don't "get the Internet thing". It seems the PR company used by OQO is one of them. Even though we are based in New Zealand, a large portion of our readers are based in the US. Oh, well...
