The pre-CES rumors were spot on again with the rumored OQO Model 2+ actually being announced and shown off at CES.

The 1.33 GHz Windows XP model with LCD display, 60GB HDD, and 1GB RAM starts at US$999 and the 1.86 GHz model with Vista Business or XP PRo, 120GB HDD, 2GB RAM, and OLED starts at US$1,499. These are actually reasonable prices compared to what the OQO models started at in the past. The devices ordered today are estimated to ship in May of 2009.
