Looks like Project Origami, Microsoft's new touch-enabled handheld PC has taken wings and is ready to fly. Channel 9 has an interview with Otto Berkes, the architect behind this project, while Microsoft PressPass has a press release describing the features of the new platform, which is apparently going to be demonstrated today at CeBIT in Germany. It's an interesting concept as I've often wished my Motion LE1600 Tablet PC was touch-enabled, especially when browsing the web. But I'm not sure how Origami (or whatever it's final name will be) would fit into the needs of my own business...
