TabletKiosk Wants Its Share Of The UMPC/Origami Pie

Tabletkiosk eo

By Jennifer De Leo

You’ve undoubtedly all heard about the UMPC, or even Microsoft’s stake in it, with Origami. Well, it looks like other vendors want their share of the action as well. TabletKiosk announced today that it plans to launch its ultramobile PC, the “eo,” at the end of April. Two versions will be available: an $899 standard model and an $999 special offer with an upgraded hard drive.

The eo weighs just under 2 pounds, houses a 1.0-GHz Via C7M processor, and comes with built-in Bluetooth and 802.11g Wi-Fi functionality. Battery life will be about 2.5 hours, and the chassis has been designed to be convenient for lefties as well as righties.
