Microsoft offers a few more 'Origami' details

Microsoft continues to be evasive about its Origami Project, which appears to be a mobile PC running Windows XP.

Despite the buzz being generated by its Origami Project, Microsoft plans to give it only brief mention at the upcoming CeBit trade show in Hanover, Germany. The event coincides with when the company has said it will offer more details. The project apparently involves a mobile PC running Windows XP, according to a website about it.

A Microsoft spokesperson said Intel and Samsung Electronics will provide the most information about Origami at the show because Microsoft had not designed any new hardware for the project.

Microsoft has been evasive about sharing details about the device since industry watchers began talking about it last week. The Origami Project now includes this terse description in lines of source code: "Origami Project: the Mobile PC running Windows XP."

To see the source code, visit Microsoft's site at www.origamiproject.com/2/ and click on "week 2" at the bottom. Next, right-click anywhere except the flash animation box, and choose "view source". The new phrase is visible at the top of the page of code.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
