Motorola revives OQO Windows XP handheld

It's an old saying that there are no bad ideas. We beg to differ. The OQO is one of such ideas we could have happily lived without. You pay roughly $2,000 and you get a sluggish 1GHz Transmeta processor, an undersized 30GB hard drive, insufficient 512MB of RAM, and a dull 800 x 480 5" screen. Yet somehow OQO Inc. managed to win the venture arm of Motorola to its side, plus to raise another $20 million in cash aimed at scaling sales and marketing efforts and accelerating research and development of their forthcoming OQO products.

I really do not ever see this particular piece of machinery taking off. It is simply way too expensive and way too .. wrong for any specific target market. Lets face it. This is not an organizer. Not a book reader. Not a laptop certainly. So...what do you -do- with it...for that price?

I have a nice Jasjar with buildin keyboard as well, svga and 1gb memory and GSM, GRPS and Bluetooth. I assure you, it didn't come even near the 2000. More like 300$
