It's time to ditch that OQO 01+ UMPC because the OQO 02 is on the way, according to some FCC documents. The OQO 01+ has been lingering around the UMPC market for well over a year without making much of an impact, but it has always been a favorite device of this Gizmodoite. Not too much is known about this upgraded model in the works:

All we can tell you is that it passed on the 5GHz band (which would imply 802.11a), as well as on two frequencies in 2.4GHz, implying 802.11b/g and Bluetooth — unfortunately, nothing there listed for cellular frequencies (which mean that might be left to a Model 02+ or some such thing).

Hrm, how dull.

DISCUSSION

I am very much looking forward to this. I'll scrap the laptop in favor of a tiny Windows machine that I can also use as a bluetooth MP3 player.
