Handtops at CES 2007

My very thoughtful pal Grahm, who runs Anything But iPod, swung by the Microsoft booth at CES today to snap and send me a few photos of the Medion MD RIM 1000 and OQO Model 02 handtops.


Click on for all the pictures and even a quick little video.

OQO Model 02







And here’s some footage of the handtop in action.

Hmm. I wonder why sliding up the display doesn’t illuminate the keys.

If you can’t get enough of the 02, check out OQO’s gallery of high-res images and a commercial of sorts.

Thanks, Grahm!

    Because its a light sensing display and sensor isn’t under the screen. So, if there’s ample light, the keyboard lights don’t need to come on… :)

  • Aha! Hasn’t even come out yet and already you know all about it. Perhaps I should stop looking at all the pretty pictures and do some reading :)

    Check the Engadget interview with Jory… it explains the light-sensing keyboard…

  • I’ve tried to watch it several times before, but it’s so choppy on my side that I just give up and cancel it. I should probably just download it and watch it from my hard drive, but I don’t have the patience.
