Microsoft Pri0

Welcome to Microsoft Pri0: That's Microspeak for top priority, and that's the news and observations you'll find here from Seattle Times technology reporter Matt Day.

Mossberg doesn’t heart the UMPC

Walt Mossberg, the Wall Street Journal’s influential personal technology columnist, gives no love to the Ultra-Mobile PC. You might recognize this new Windows computer by its code name, Origami. Samsung is selling the first of these computers next week.

Unfortunately, the Samsung Q1 is so deeply flawed in key respects that it amounts to little more than a toy for techies. For everyone else, it’s impractical and frustrating. Unless the UMPC can evolve significantly beyond this first effort, it may wind up as a footnote in the history of personal computers, rather than an exciting new category.

The review comes just as Apple debuts new commercials touting another Mossberg review, one in which he says the iMac G5 is the finest desktop PC on the market at any price.
