Paul Allen's Vulcan Mini-PC. Here is another interesting device from CES this week. "A hitherto unknown group within multibillionaire Paul Allen's Vulcan Inc. techno-empire has designed a compact, lightweight, wireless computer that is expected to debut by Christmas for between $1,200 and $1,500." It runs Windows XP. Now this is a device I would want. I have never seen the interest in the OQO. Too big to be a PDA, to small to be a work machine. The Vulcan though is the ultimate mini-PC.

Specs include:

  • 5.8-inch screen at 800X400
  • 20GB drive
  • Support for external keyboard and mouse
  • Batteries last for up to four hours
  • USB 2 port with external CD-ROM
  • WiFi or one of two cellular technologies integrated at the choice of the OEM.
