Other OSs[edit]

Now what I want to know is- does it run Linux? --maru (talk) Contribs 00:22, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

It can, theoretically, run any x86 OS. -Sammysunset 22:46, 9 April 2007 (UTC)

Not evolving fast enough[edit]

Looks like OQO got a head start at UMPC, however, its high cost may be its demise. Samsung, ASUS, and Founder UMPCs all look comparative but with much attractive price tag. Both intel and MS sites only list those three makers. Samsung Q1 sold out on its first day of sale.

I think the Samsung is a tablet PC, the ASUS doesn't have a physical keyboard and the Sony 5% cheaper but much larger. These things are all just toys anyway, so I would prefer the OQO for reasons I can't explain.--Old Guard 12:34, 29 August 2006 (UTC)

OQO 03?[edit]

Is the OQO 03 real or a clone?

Grammar and verb tense corrections.[edit]

Phantom Wordsmith 11:32, 5 Sept 2006 (EDT) First major grammar and wording corrections. No change to content.

Question for Discussion[edit]

The PCWorld quote is odd given the upgrades to the subsequent models, but I have no expertise to know if the quote should now be dropped. For instance, does anyone know if the unit still runs "too hot"?

A: I have an OQO e2 HSPDA 120gb and no it doesn't run too hot. The e2 has two modes "Cool" or "Quiet", I run mine in quiet and in Vista's power saver mode. Reviews do say it runs annoyingly hot though, but I think that must be down to personal preference. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:51, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Sighted in Mission Impossible 3.[edit]

Is it pertinent to mention that the OQO appeared in Mission Impossible 3?

It's at 43:50.

I wouldn't think so. It's also in "Jericho" the US tv series. 22:51, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

Keyboard commands[edit]

What are these doing here? I don't think that they add anything to this article. --Thenickdude 13:37, 20 January 2007 (UTC)

I agree This should be deleted--Leon 07:24, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Oqo logo.svg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Oqo logo.svg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Added logo, including fair use rationale (unlike the previous image uploaded by someone else). --Luinfana (talk) 22:55, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Article Problems[edit]

This article appears to be in need of serious repair. Where is the source for saying they "ceased operations in May 2009"? It gennerally needs better sourcing and copyediting/wikification. Oldlaptop321 (talk) 20:32, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

The OQO website says "We are sorry to report that OQO Inc. is out of Business as of April 2009, OQO has closed." Last paragraph here: Quickos (talk) 03:23, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

The OQO homepage URL now redirects to, a website in Chinese (I noticed no English-language section) and touting essentially the same products, even promoting a computer magazine award it or the former OQO received. The latest news is from May 2011. -Mardus (talk) 02:07, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
I find it therefore suspicious that a Chinese-language operation has been in the works well after the U.S. company's demise. -Mardus (talk) 02:10, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
